Forensic Science and English Porcelains – Science Express

Discover how scientific advances are revealing remarkable new information about English porcelains. Could some be older than previously thought?

Scientist Dr Ross Ramsay and Gael Ramsay explore the early years of ceramic experimentation in England. They show how recent forensic analysis of some 18th-century porcelains challenges accepted wisdom about their dates and origins.

Recorded in September 2014 as part of Te Papa’s Science Express programme.
