While the University’s museums and galleries are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus emergency, we’re sharing more of our collections online. This is the latest in a series of films in which museum curator Matthew Jarron tells the stories behind some of our most interesting objects and artworks. In this video we look at specimens in the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum collected by D’Arcy’s assistant Alexander Rodger during Arctic voyages on board Dundee whaling ships. It features images from the Museum Collections as well as photo from the University Archives and private collections. You can find out more about our collections at www.dundee.ac.uk/museum
