Leeds Museums and Galleries is the largest local-authority-run museum service in England and Wales with nine sites ranging from magnificent stately homes, industrial sites, museums, an art gallery and a medieval abbey. Core to the service are the collections, an estimated 1.3 million individual objects across a vast range of disciplines which have an international reputation for their quality, depth and unique nature. Through them stories can be told about world civilisations, human evolution, the rise of the industrialised world, human creativity and the environment in which we live. In this book, the Director of Leeds Museums and Galleries draws from these vast collections to highlight the objects and artworks that resonate for him personally, giving his reasons why they do so and inviting us to seek them out ourselves when we visit.
