History of Wakefield in two objects
South Elmsall Readers Group have been reading about some of the objects in The History of the World in 100 Objects. They then visited Wakefield Library and Museum where they enjoyed a behind the scenes tour led by curator John Whitaker. Finally they had a closer look at two objects and found out what they could reveal about Wakefield’s history and donned the plastic gloves for the privilege of handing the Celtic head. Would any other Readers Groups like to do this?
