RAMM Crimean Artefacts


In 2019 the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter kindly transferred a small collection of artefacts they held relating to the Crimean War to the BRLSI Collection.

Museums will sometimes transfer small parts of their collection to other museums, especially those in the same region of the UK, who have a stronger collection of the same theme. Condensing collections in this way is a form of collections management that enables the strengthening of themes in particular museums, making those collections easier to use for public engagement and more convenient for specialist researchers to study.

While the objects were not included in the 2012 Crimean Relics exhibition, I have added them to the online exhibition as they fit the theme perfectly, and their transfer was inspired by the exhibition in the first instance. You will find them at the end of the page.
