Event Details

Celebrating 150 years since the Falconer Museum opened, we invite everyone to write a short imaginative text, relating to Hugh Falconer’s life, work, or museum. Any personal take is possible: experiences of a naturalist as well as memories of visits to the museum.

Scientific content is not required (although never a hindrance). Imagination is key. What was it like to find a fossilised bone and realise that it belonged to a mammoth? What is going on in the head of the Tortiphant?
