Working with fossils at Ipswich Museum

During the first two weeks of the objects and art in mind course we have been working with fossils.  We have not only spent time in the geology gallery but have had the wonderful opportunity to have access to one of the museum’s handling boxes containing a selection of fossils that we have been able to work directly from.
