Opposites Attract: Science in Archives.
Archives are not known for cutting edge science, but all that scientific thinking is distilled, recorded and kept in many archive collections.
This conference will uncover Robert Hooke’s world, the latest from Saving Oxford Medicine at the Bodleian Library, what goes on in CERN, and last but definitely not least, the science behind archive conservation featuring a presentation by LMA Conservation Studio Manager Caroline De Stefani on the Great Parchment Book project.
London Metropolitan Archives, 40 Northampton Road, London EC1R 0HB
