    History of Greenwich in 50 objects

    History of Greenwich in 50 objects
     

    Inspired by objects in the Royal Museums Greenwich’s sites and collections, you will investigate the history of Greenwich.

    Explore the history of Greenwich with curators, conservators, storytellers, storekeepers and mudlarks.  Each week will be focused on different objects, both from the Museum’s Collection and art, statues and memorials in public spaces, along with extraordinary finds from the Thames mud.

    Visit the History of Greenwich website to view a selection or suggest an “object” that says Greenwich.

    Curated by local historian and storyteller Rich Sylvester.
