We recently launched a new digital exhibition on "Ure Routes", an online version of our previous "Hidden Women in the Archive: Collectors, Curators and Cataloguers" exhibition. Essentially, the handlist has been replicated online, with the addition of some fabulous short films, one for each of the ten women represented in the exhibition.
Late last year, a number of staff and students in the Classics Department and the Ure Museum were roped into providing voice overs for these films, bringing the artefacts and archives included in the display to life. It was thrilling for me to hear extracts from the archives read aloud, a compelling reminder of the humans behind museum collections. I hope you think so to.
