The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

History of the World in A Hundred Objects

Just a little reminder, this is coming back today! Today's object is a coin with the head of Alexander.

Oh, and if you go here, you can sign up to receive the podcast, or, indeed, download all the episodes thus far - which I believe you will be able to keep for ever and ever, and make a podcast museum of your own...

Sorry. It's early in the morning and I've had no coffee.
