For more than 125 years, the Royal BC Museum has preserved, explained and celebrated BC’s heritage. Its seven million artifacts and archives record what BC has been and is. The striking mix of natural history and social history, from mammoths to masks, enables it to tell the widest possible range of stories: of land and people, of place and movement. Today, as BC’s largest museum, the Royal BC Museum attracts half a million visitors a year.

April Fool’s Weekend Scavenger Hunt

Our Living Languages: First People’s Voices in BC

Don’t let the Royal BC Museum dupe you. To mark the occasion, our staff will place unusual objects alongside artifacts and specimens in exhibitions throughout the galleries. One of these things is not like the other, and it’s your job to identify the objects that don’t belong. March 28 – April 1 10am – 5pm Free with admission or membership.

Coming 2014 Our Living Languages exhibition is a collaboration between the Royal BC Museum and First Peoples’ Cultural Council. BC is the most linguistically diverse region in Canada. Sadly, of BC’s 34 languages, 22 are nearly extinct. These statistics have led linguists to identify this region as one of the world’s five language ‘hotspots’ – places with a high degree of linguistic diversity, yet where languages are vanishing most rapidly. Our Living Languages will embody and contextualize the richness and strength of this linguistic heritage and share it with the world. If you are interested in supporting the development of this very important project please contact us at donate@royalbcmuseum.bc.ca.

We Call Them Vikings May 16 – November 11, 2014 On its first North American stop, We Call Them Vikings challenges our commonly held beliefs as the Vikings emerge in a fascinating new light. Insights into Viking domestic life, death rituals, the significance of their craft, the power of mythology and the symbolism of their ships are explored in this interactive exhibition. See hundreds of rare Norse artifacts – jewellery, swords, axes, and clothing – many of which have never been shown outside Scandinavia. Produced by the Museums Partner, Austria and The Swedish History Museum.

Friends of the BC Archives Lecture Series A series of Sunday talks which celebrate the intersections between archives, history and our modern lives. From murder mysteries to a look at Emily Carr’s so-called “barrenyears” guest speakers will draw on the richness of the BC Archives collections to engage and inform. Newcombe Auditorium All lectures: 2pm – 3:30pm Entrance is $5.00 for non-members of the Friends of BC Archives. Light refreshments are available.


Archives & Galleries Kerry Mason – “Emily Carr: No Such Thing as Barren Years” October 20 The years of 1913 to 1927 in the life of internationally renowned artist and author Emily Carr have often been referred to as her “barren years”; Mason believes instead that this period showed a surge of creativity. Join us for an illustrated lecture about B.C.’s most famous artist. Michael Layland – “Where Honour and Glory Lead” November 17 The Royal Engineers, also known as the “Sappers”, provided many and varied forms of support in the early days of the two British colonies on the Pacific coast of North America. The speaker, an ex-sapper himself, will give an overview of their contributions. Raymond Frogner – “Squatters’ Rights and the Archival Meridian of William Pearce, Director of the Dominion Lands Board.” January 19 As Inspector of Lands Agencies for the Dominion Lands Board (1881-1884), Pearce was an administrator and policymaker at a time when Ottawa was formulating and implementing lands policy in the frontier west. His surveys of homesteads, Indian reserves and municipal borders sometimes led to friction – and even the accusation of causing the Riel Rebellion. John Adams – “Victoria’s Black History” February 16 At the invitation of Governor James Douglas several hundred Black settlers arrived from California to farm and pursue many other

occupations on Vancouver Island in 1858. Who were they and why did they come? John Adams, Victoria-based historian, heritage interpreter and author will answer these questions and provide many other interesting insights about Victoria’s Black pioneers. Lisa Helps – “Neighbours Helping Neighbours: An Old-Fashioned Approach to a Modern Problem” March 16 While researching at the Archives, Lisa came across a story from the local newspaper from July 1931 that read, “Citizens Emergency Relief Fund Surpasses $50,000.” It struck her, if people in Victoria did this in the past, what was stopping them now? Find out how historical research at the Archives became the genesis for a community program called micro-lending. Linda Eversole – “Without Justice: Two Victorian Era Unsolved Murders” April 13 Bakery owner Agnes Bings died around 8 pm on the night of September 29, 1899, the victim of a “Jack the Ripper” type attack. Two days later a second murder followed. Fortunately correspondence, the reports of the undercover Pinkerton operatives, and local detectives’ notebooks have survived. They provide compelling details on life in Victoria at the turn of the 20th century with accounts of undercover work in hotels, saloons and brothels.

Helmcken Family Christmas Programs [Grades K–3] In the 1880s, Dr Helmcken’s family would have been getting ready for Christmas celebrations, including some typical Victorian traditions.

November 25 – December 20 Heritage Week School Programs [Grades 3-5] Get wet and pan for real gold every day of Heritage Week on the third floor in the Modern History Gallery.
