Packing for social bones

Quick blog to say sorry for being quiet - I've been manning various events in the Cambridge Science Festival, and now am packing pictures and skeletons for Skeletons, Stories and Social Bodies conference in Southampton University this week.

Hope to see you there - please come along and say hello! #skeleton #conference #SkeletonBob
