Jeremy Bentham’s preserved head goes back on public display

Benthams-Head-1It’s fairly well known that Jeremy Bentham’s body is preserved in a glass case at University College London. But it’s less well known that his head was also preserved, and was brought out of storage every so often to be checked. Now that head is also going on display in a new exhibition on ‘Curating Heads’ in the Octagon Gallery, Wilkins Building at UCL. News story here and here. Thanks to Justin Choi for the link.
