Assignment of Objects

Yesterday everyone drew a series of slips marked with the accession and item-level numbers for the Beardsley artifacts and specimens that they will be researching. Afterwards, David, Holly, Nancy, and Jessica accompanied me and Carrie to the Museum, where they were able to get a first glimpse at the objects they'll be working with (we look forward to the rest of you stopping by during open lab hours).

David removes the basting stitches on the protective
 covering to reveal the skirt below. 

Carrie helps Nancy,  Holly and Jessica retrieve
 their objects from the repository. 
More objects, and a glimpse into the diversity of the
collection (the grid is a ceiling light reflection).
