In this episode (part one of two), curators Melissa and Poppy explore poignant stories from museum collections. We'll be discussing artefacts that tell tales of loss, grief and heartbreak: from shipwrecked oddments, devastating letters and a book that captures the final moments of one of history's greatest love stories. Tune in to discover which items have moved us to tears and why we love working with them. As for this week's item spotlight... we're taking a trip to the dungeons of Carlisle Castle for this one!
