I started working as volunteer at Eastgate House Museum aged eleven when I joined the Eastgate House Junior Museum Society. At that time the curator Jospeh C Taylor was living in the office, literally, and was keen to encourage my interest in history. I was offered a tremendous freedom to explore the museum, its stores and collections and this continued with more formalised training when Michael Moad was appointed Curator following the death of Joseph.
