A shark’s toothy jaw and the bony and jagged ‘nose’ from a sawfish are just two of the display items at Boston’s Guildhall Museum’s new Sir Joseph Banks exhibition.
The exhibition, which will run until November, celebrates the life and times of Sir Joseph Banks, one time Recorder to Boston in 1813, who was a botanist and explorer who sailed with Captain Cook on board the Endeavour to discover Australia. The exhibition has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Lincolnshire County Council and the Sir Joseph Banks Society.
The Guildhall Museum, in South Street, is open Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 3.30pm, last admission at 3pm.
Admission is free.
