We did it once again! We’ve been nominated for ‘Object of The Year 2024’ for our Ancient Prehistoric submerged forest tree stump.
Each year the Cornwall Museum Partnerships run the Heritage Awards to celebrate and share the achievements of the heritage community of Cornwall. This year we are turning the spotlight onto Cornwall’s unique places by drawing attention to objects that tell stories of both the natural and built landscape. A sense of place shapes our individual identities and shared cultures, and the relationships between object and place tell stories of our responses to our environment.
The Object of the Year is decided by public vote, this year we have been nominated with our “Wood from a Submerged Ancient Forest” story, how a preserved piece of a tree trunk from an ancient prehistoric submerged forest, a unique part of the Cornish landscape was unearthed at Crooklets beach, Bude, the site of one of several submerged ancient forests found throughout Cornwall. Read more and vote by visiting their website: HA-Object of the Year 2024 – Cornwall Museums Partnership – Cornwall Museums Partnership (voting closes on 8th January and you can vote as many times as you wish, you may need to use a different device each time).
