Artefacts collection online

artefactsThe Artefacts collection can best be summed up as the 'social history' or 'community history' collection. It comprises around 300 items, mostly from the period 1850-1980, of which about half are on permanent display in the themed cases within the museum.

Most of the 'things' you see in the museum which do not fall into the other collection categories will probably be in artefacts. As such, it is an extremely diverse and exciting array of local material.
