Visitors to the Museum

The Museum was recently visited by Matthew Knight, who is currently doing research on an AHRC-funded project looking at the intentional destruction of Bronze Age metalwork in South-West England. He is co-supervised by Professor Anthony Harding (Exeter) and Dr. Joanna Bruck (Bristol). There is the intention to conduct experimental work as part of his study and to link it with significant theoretical concepts, such as agency and phenomenology.

The links below cover Matthew's visit to Blandford Forum and to the Blandford Museum and shows some of the material he studied while visiting us.

Matthew presents a lovely view of Blandford Forum and our Museum. His detailed results have been presented to the museum and we are grateful for this expert and detailed information on our Bronze Age artefacts.
