THEME

We have created themes about some of the objects in the collection. These themes group different objects together to illustrate some of the wide variety of topics the Museum's collection encompasses. The themes can illustrate different subjects, focus on intriguing objects, or tell forgotten stories about objects in our collection. They may be biographies of people connected with our objects, or provide detailed specialist information. They can show the relationships between objects in our collection.

Themes are one way of making sense of our vast and varied collection online. They can provide an entry point to the Museums collection. New themes are added regularly and existing ones are often updated or further developed. Related object records are accessible from these themes, and themes are accessible from individual object records.
