During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century it was unheard of for a woman to collect minerals. However, the social status of women at that time didn’t stop one Lady Henrietta Antonia, Countess of Powis, who assembled a fine collection of minerals from around the world at a time when activities were dominated by men. Now this exquisite collection of minerals will be on show for the first time at National Museum Cardiff from 14 December to 31 March.
The festive season is soon approaching and the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea is going green to mark the occasion.
