This year long Stromness Museum project engaged Rebecca in research, exhibition support, community activities and events, based on the interests of the museum’s founder, Rev Dr Charles Clouston. His interests ranged from weather to seaweed, archaeology to geology. The project resulted in an exhibition at Stromness Museum, the production of an illustrated seaweed guide, a day conference, a reference resource and a year long competition in association with The Cloud Appreciation Society.
