Discussion of the objects at Khama III Memorial Museum in 2019.


One of the first things JoAnn and I did after arriving in Serowe was to work through pictures of Brighton Museum's collection of objects from Botswana with Scobie, Gase and Winani. We talked alot about the correct terms to use from the objects but the recording also include anecdotes triggered by the objects and discussion about how few of the things some team members recognised. The recording is in two parts. Relevant information from the first recording has been added to the individual object records. (NSty 22/09/2020)
