Weighing fossils

Selecting fossils for redisplay at Bridport Museum
Selecting fossils for redisplay at Bridport Museum

One of the best things about working with museums is that no two days are ever the same. Last week I was down at Bridport Museum with Emily and Beth doing some preparation work for the new galleries. On a rather chilly day we were assessing potential fossils to go on display in the updated Jurassic Coast displays – which includes weighing each one to make sure the case they are going into is strong enough. It’s always a real treat to get the chance to work directly with fantastic objects like this fossil collection. It’s going to beĀ  a really impressive display.
