Thanks for all your great guesses! This isn’t an early prototype – it’s a set of ancient Egyptian paint pots or ink wells made from stone 🎨🖌️

Can you guess what this artifact was used for? DYK that there were 1000+ artifacts recovered with that vessel? They found tools, equipment & even personal items! You can see some of these artifacts on display in our Visitor Centre.

Thanks for your guesses! This is a bronze aquamanile, a vessel used to wash hands at meal times. It could be filled with water using the hole in the knight’s helmet, and emptied through the hole in the horse’s head. It was made in the late 13th century in England.

Can you identify this ? This item was received by the years ago, but without any detail as to what it is or where it came from! Many have tried and failed to discover more about it. Any guesses?

What will it be this week? This is small enough to be comfortably held in one hand and, perhaps in a slightly different shape, is something many of us frequently use today!. Do you know what this amazing artifact is?

Is it a can or jar opener? It looks like it hangs on the wall, perhaps?
