Guest speaker: Jan Nargar on “These are a few of my favourite things”
This talk is titled “These are a few of my favourite things”. It presents a selection of my favourite objects from the collections of the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology. The Abbey Museum has an international collection and our vision is to enrich people’s lives through stories told from the collection. The objects presented here are not necessarily the biggest, the shiniest or the oldest but objects which come with great stories. Expect tales of a pirate. Be surprised by an amazing medieval musical manuscript discovery. Hold Punic War leftovers from Tunisia. Find out the price of a bride in Melanesia. Hear about a little known empire in Eastern Java. All this and more!
Jan Nargar is the Registrar of the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology at Caboolture. She has been a teacher and information manager and has had a lifelong interest in history. Jan leads the Collection Management Team of volunteers who research, document and record information about the museum’s collection.
