In his new book The Unburnt Egg - More stories of a museum curator, Brian Gill delves further into the mysteries of the natural history collections he has worked with over three decades. Gill is a gifted storyteller who enriches the book with engaging scientific information, from the ever-evolving explanations for the dying out of the huia to the reason so many seal bones are found in certain sand dunes, and why the shining cuckoo leaves its young to be raised by other birds.
Sequel to the widely praised The Owl that Fell from the Sky.
