Join former Senior Zoology Lecturer at Royal Holloway Dr Pat Morris for a fascinating tour through the history of taxidermy, from its earliest examples to modern incarnations.
This Zoom talk will review the history and development of taxidermy as a part of our social and natural history.
It will search Europe to find the oldest existing stuffed animals, comment on the use of arsenic and review styles and methods used by the multitude of businesses, small and large, that operated in the 19th and early 20th century.
Bad taxidermy will also be contrasted with how professional taxidermists now strive to attain perfection in this field of artistic endeavour.
