How do you go about finding a dinosaur? It’s the best kind of treasure hunt. The thrill, the satisfaction, the excitement of finding a fossil is something not everyone gets to experience.
In September, 1971, the ROM opened the landmark exhibition Keep Me Warm One Night, a kaleidoscopic display of over 500 pieces of Canadian handweaving. It was the culmination of decades of pioneering research and collecting by the ROM curatorial powerhouse duo 'Burnham and Burnham’, aka Dorothy K. Burnham and Harold B. Burnham.
