|Description||The Museum Collection contains over 15,000 objects. It spans thousands of years of history, including prehistoric and Roman artefacts as well as beautiful items from Hamiltons & Co. Brushworks, Whitefriars Glass and the famous Kodak factory.|
Objects in the Museum Collection are owned by the Harrow Museums Trust.
The objects are divided into ten collections categories:
A - Archaeology
B - Books and Written Material
F - Fine Art
G - Geology and Natural History
I - Industry
M - Maps and Plans
N - Numismatics and Exonumia
P - Photographs and Postcards
S - Social History
T - Textiles
Not all of the objects in the Museum collection have been catalogued onto the hierarchy. Each object also has a separate Object Number, which is a date based form, e.g. 1987:103, and is the primary method of identifying the object.
Objects in the Industry and Social History categories are also in the process of being catalogued according to an enhanced SHIC system (Social History and Industrial Classification); more information on the SHIC system can be found here: www.shcg.org.uk/About-SHIC
