Join researcher Wanne Mendonck from the Faculty of English on a top-speed tour through the museum’s animal world … as the Victorians experienced it! Learn why Charles Darwin was obsessed with beetles and dined on owls, why late-century ostriches were worth their weight in gold, why everyone in the 1860s was suddenly into gorillas, and why John Ruskin really did not like penguins.
