Mungo Campbell

This is a showcase of poems enquiring into and representing objects both natural and humanly-made, from bird's nests to Lord Kelvin's artificial pitch glacier, from deep sea coral to an Egyptian mummy, from the world's smallest dinosaur footprint to Roman and Celtic remains from the Antonine Wall. If you enjoyed Neil MacGregor's 'History of the World in 100 Objects', try this 'History of the World in Objects and Poems from The Hunterian Collection at the University of Glasgow'.



Bookmark is a great festival and I hope it goes from strength to strength.
