Material Culture at Saltram House

In collaborative partnership with the National Trust’s Saltram House and Plymouth and West Devon Record Office, undergraduate History students led by Jonathan Mackintosh are  developing their skills through hands-on engagement with artefacts and documents at Saltram House, the Georgian country house of the Parker family on the outskirts of Plymouth.

The work was challenging, requiring students to take creative initiative in order to work with, understand and interpret things - material culture -  some of which were being accessed or opened for the first time.
