Welcome to Museum Box, This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary? You can display anything from a text file to a movie. You can also view and comment on the museum boxes submitted by others. More...

Our inspiration

Thomas Clarkson

The project was inspired by the anti-slavery campaigner - Thomas Clarkson, who did exactly as described above.

Thomas Clarkson's Box

He carried around a box of items (ranging from African produce to diagrams of transportation ships) to illustrate his arguments during his campaign.
