We have selected objects which reflect some important themes in our collection. Click on Themes to explore. The themes are a selection of items from the collection, they do not necessarily contain all the objects and books we have in the collection that relate to that subject.
We have not edited or removed the historic names or marketing information of objects in our database. As such you may find some language in our raw data which is now offensive or contested. We are continually working to contextualise this language in our interpretation.
Objects are so much more useful and interesting if they are accompanied by strong stories. If you have a story to tell about one of our objects, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
