Today history is central to an individual’s cultural identity, but it was not until the 18th century in Northern Europe that the idea of history as an absorbing hobby and an important part of national pride started to form. As this began to happen so too did the idea of collecting the past, and everything from doorknockers to coins, to prehistoric flint hand axes was collected, conserved and catalogued.
