Looking after the broken bits
In the depths of our stores we keep something called a ‘Bit box’. In this ‘Bit box’ we keep and record everything that has ever fallen off a collection piece, with the aim of reattaching them. Find out why we’ve got King Charles II's finger, what on earth is a glass lustre and where did a golden swag come from? All this and more on Monday 10 September, 12noon - 2pm.
