Animal, Vegetable, Mineral? Mystery Object Panel Game
Wednesday 19 October 6.30 – 7.30pm
Anatomy Building, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
What’s that object? Our panel of UCL experts Claire Thomson (Scandinavian Studies), Ryan Nichol (Physics and Astronomy), Tom Stern (Philosophy) and Sam Turvey (Institute of Zoology) hosted by Joe Flatman (Institute of Archaeology) will guess what some of the weird, wonderful and wacky objects in UCL Museums & Collections are. Compete with them on the night via twitter and paper.
UCL Museums are bringing back the classic 1950s TV show Animal, Vegetable, Mineral which launched David Attenborough’s career in television and made television icons out of various academics, including Glynn Daniels, Julian Huxley and Mortimer Wheeler. In this light-hearted recreation of the classic TV panel game, outwit the experts and come up with funnier explanations as they try to identify our mystery specimens, objects and artefacts from our fantastic collections.
Following the event join us for a free glass of wine in a private view of the Grant Museum. Admission is free and there is no need to book.
