Peter Volk

Peter joined the Museum as a cadet in January 1980. Since then he has worked in, on or with machinery restoration, mineralogy, archaeology, palaeontology, petrology, history and anthropology in various capacities, though mostly as a collection manager. He has also spent a good deal of time in support of small and regional museums, helping with issues of collection management and collection databases. After more than 35 years in the business, he has seen it all and written a registration number on most of it.
