Rescuing flooded eggs, Stevenage Museum Flood

Flood Recovery

In the next weeks we will try to keep you updated on the process of recovering a flooded collection (part of the collection). On Friday we were pouring water out of bags meant to protect a range of items from bowling shoes, stuffed birds, old trophies, boxes full of photos and post cards, whilst keeping hold of the paper labels tied to the objects.

On the photo you can see one of the surreal mini scenarios we found – a collection of rare birds eggs floating in their drawer.
