Science at the Seaside is a collaboration between Ilfracombe Museum, Bath Spa University and the University of Exeter, which proposes a new and original understanding of the interlinked growth of popular science and coastal tourism during the Victorian period, with the different outputs producing original insights into the Victorian fascination with natural history.
This item contains documentation of the workshops and activities programme.
A project committee of the museum curator, Kyriaki Hadjiafxendi, John Plunkett (Exeter), and the research project manager collaborated to devise an events programme, based on the project research, that sought to communicate and embody the research insights. Hadjiafxendi delivered a talk on Victorian handicrafts, ran a handicraft workshop, and participated in the event on 'curious objects' from the museum's collection.
