Rarely do natural history and video games collide as much as they do in the wonderful natural history museum located on your home island in Animal Crossing. The owl-eyed curator is always keen to pass on his knowledge of the fantastical fossils and intriguing insects (even if they do make him a little scared!). But how do you know if Blathers is giving you all the information you need?

Game Designer Elizabeth Simoens invites Exhibitions and Display Coordinator at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, Rob Theodore, to her island to visit the museum and explore all of the fossils Elizabeth has donated during her time in Animal Crossing. This live stream was co-hosted by the Game Dev London podcast and the University of Cambridge Museums, and featured Rob giving expert answers to Elizabeth’s questions about her virtual fossil collection!
