Hello, I’m Object 116.51. You can call me Shaggy.
I was crafted in 1918 by a curator called Samuel Cowle. He worked at the archaeology museum in Cambridge, and he made me out of a roof beam dating from 1414. I don’t want to brag, but that means I’d once held up the Cauis College roof. I’m brawny like that.
Now that I’m retired, I meditate above the Museum of Cambridge’s Guest Room in the sun puddles that pool through the window.
I’m 600 years old and I have a lot of stories to tell, but I have no other objects around me at the Museum. I guess I’d just like some new friends. If you adopt me, you’ll also protect from fraternising with ‘bad sorts’, like Furniture and Death Watch Beetles.
