Official Collection

Our official collection consists of our original artefacts. We have a very diverse and constantly growing collection, spreading across eras and from all different parts of the globe. Rather than creating a strictly chronological order for our displays, we have chosen to group our objects into particular themes. These objects will all naturally overlap with other themes through their history and purpose, but we hope that these broad categories provide some striking and thought-provoking displays.
