With the Manchester Science Festival in full swing there are events for adults and families all over Manchester.

Today at the Museum we are hosting three talks – at 11am there is Alan Turing in Manchester: His last years and legacy by Dr James Sumner from the University of Manchester’s Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM). At 1pm Leucha Veneer, also from CHSTM, will be talking about William Boyd Dawkins, The Manchester Museum first curator who brought science to the fore in understanding of archaeology. Boyd Dawkins: Ancient worlds cave hunter, is linked to the new Ancient Worlds galleries which opened in the Museum on Friday 26 October.
