Museum object appears in Bumblebees book
One of the Museum’s most endearing objects appears in a new book on Bumblebees. The book is published by Bloomsbury and is part of the RSPB spotlight series. This title focuses on Bumblebees.
It is mostly a book on natural history and at the end the end it includes a section on Bumblebees in myths, legends and folklore. It includes an image of our “bees in a bag” charm bag, object number 262.
A copy of the book was donated to the Museum library by the publisher who also made a donation to the Museum for use of the image.
