A history of Yorkshire in 70 objects – the items which just missed out

Additional items from our history of Yorkshire in 70 objects project
Our three-part feature on the History of Yorkshire in 70 Objects highlights the varied and fascinating items on show in the museums and historic houses across the county.
The first part of the series appeared in the May issue of Yorkshire Life and parts two and three will be in the June and July magazines.
The items featured do not paint a full picture of Yorkshire’s history, or give a comprehensive account of our past but they do give an intriguing insight into the lives of the people who came before us.
Some items would not have had much apparent historic significance in their owner’s lifetimes – a tobacco box, miner’s lamp or a theatre handbill for instance – but they now offer a glimpse of a lost world.
We have worked with museums across the county – and other custodians of our heritage such as English Heritage and the National Trust – to produce this selection of items but not every museum is represented and not all the items suggested have made the final list. Here we reveal some of the nominated objects which didn’t make the final cut.
