Museum in a Day

Dan Zambonini and Mike Ellis have challenged themselves to build a museum website in a day. That day is the 2nd November. Check out the blog and twitter if you're interested!

I was walking around Leicester today and I realised what a city of contradiction it is. Such great beauty, greenery and grandeur, then turn widdershins and there is poverty, homelessness and degradation. It is a city of faded glory, a former lordship and stronghold. Somewhere within it lie the bones of a villified king fallen in battle, the forgotten remains of a great Roman bath house, all hidden below the modern city. Leicester is, in so many ways, a bricolage assemblage of every era of history.
