The Collectors' Room
The collectors’ room
By the door into the Collectors’ room, on the right-hand side of the door frame, you can see a ‘VV’ sign, known as a ‘viva mark’. This was often scratched onto walls and doors to ward off evil spirits. The candle burn marks on the outside of the door frame were probably made to protect the house from fire.
The room is full of treasures from the museum collections with more on show in the pull-out drawers.
