Lost and Found

Lost and Found

In conjunction with the Centre for Visual Art and Culture at Durham University and to coincide with Durham University’s Being Human Festival, we present Lost and Found, an exploration of the hidden stories behind objects, people and places. Jonathan Peacock, curator of the Museum’s forthcoming exhibition about Streatlam Castle, will talk about his fascinating research into the history of the house, its family and contents.  Following tea, there’ll be ten-minute presentations from curators and members of Durham University based on current research and topics of interest. All are welcome to join us for an afternoon of discovery!
