Never Been Seen - cultural artifacts


Prolix Maximus
The UK Science museum has a large catalogue of digitised cultural artifacts and someone has created a website that picks a random entry from the catalogue that has 0 views and shows it to you so that you can be one of the first people to see it.

Thus far most of the items I've seen have not been particularly interesting or that old (oldest: a limestone standardised weight from Carthage, most interesting, a 19th century figurine from West Congo) but still, it's fascinating and quite sad in a way to think that someone made these things and that virtually no-one outside the museum team has seen them.

Post anything interesting you find!
