The collections we here at the Museum of True History have categorised as ‘Unknowns’ are ostensibly groupings of like objects. Each of these individual collections reference the known characteristics of the museum storeroom, with each object being allocated an acquisition identification number. Unfortunately as with many inherited collections we have been unable to authenticate the provenance of these particular artefacts, which also hinders our ability to research beyond a very superficial diagnosis of origin, type and function. In order to adhere to our mission of ontological progress we have chosen, for the time being, to assign the classification as ‘Unknown’. As a visitor to our collections, you may well recognise and be able to identify one or many of these artefacts, we do however ask that you keep this information to yourself as we have already enlisted an internal framework for the consideration of collection materials.
