Me and another student have been doing work experience at Hull maritime for the past week.
We have enjoyed many parts of our work week including; climbing to the top of the Hull Maritime Museum on the scaffolding and having a look inside the building which is still currently a work in progress but finding out all the plans and ideas they have to completely transform the museum was great and I think it will make a huge difference.
As well as climbing to great heights, we also visited an archaeologist dig where we were well informed on all the historical artefacts and objects they had previously found at the former site of Henry VIII's fort.
During the experience we went to a meeting at Dunstons dockyard and saw the progress on the Arctic Corsair, as well as doing conservation with one of the maritime’s conservation and engagement officers, Stathis.
We worked on a ship’s figurehead that is going to be displayed after it is restored.
We also helped to gain a young person's perspective on the heritage sector and helped with social media content.
Thank you to all the lovely members of the Hull Maritime project team including Malcolm Dunn who oversaw our work experience and made it all happen by providing us with amazing opportunities
