Marc Brunel developed the tunnelling shield which paved the way for all modern tunnels. But he was only imitating nature.

This interactive exhibition for Easter holidays 2023 will reveal how Marc Brunel was inspired by Teredo Navalis, the humble shipworm, and will include a live demo of the creatures themselves.
