Museum Managers to deliver talks at Folklore Society Conference in April

In April, there will be a three day event in London called Reflected Shadows: Folklore and the Gothic.   Judith and Peter Hewitt (the Managers of the Museum) will each be delivering a talk/paper at this Folklore Society Conference.

Judith will be exploring the idea of Halloween as a folk phenomenon expression of a Gothic sensibility while Peter will be looking at the Museum and its collection (with a focus on human remains) and considering to what extent it can be seen as a Gothic Museum.

More details on these talks to come...
