`Letting stuff live’ on The Museum of Marco Polo

My article `Letting stuff live’ has been published on the well-regarded and heavily-visited website The Museum of Marco Polo.

It’s a provocative think piece on what we are actually doing with stuff in museums – my answer is not enough.  Marco Polo introduces it

`Caroline Ellis speaks up for objects, asking whether we should let them lead fuller lives in museums – and acknowledge the rich lives they led before they came to us.’

The Museum of Marco Polo is curated by writer Rachel Morris of designers Metaphor and is recommended for an enjoyable and thought-provoking read.

`Belvedere Village’ to be published in `Bygone Kent’

`Belvedere Village – Victorian Prayers and Profit’ is a primary source- based article on the rapid development of Upper Belvedere in the 1800s.  It’s a tale of pubs and patrimony, crooks and committees, old salts, villas and watercress.  `Bygone Kent’ is the magazine of Kent’s history and `Belvedere Village’ will appear shortly.
