Total number of objects in the Royal Armouries collection
Frankie Roberto made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Royal Armouries
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to request the total number of objects that you hold in your permanent collections.
If an exact figure is not available, please provide instead your estimated total, along with an explanation as to how this figure was calculated.
P.S Please note that this same request has been made to all the UK museums covered under the Freedom of Information Act, and that your response will be automatically made public at http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/user/frank.... This request is partly a test of the WhatDoTheyKnow project. If you have any questions about the project, you can contact the project team at http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/help/contact
Dear Mr. Roberto
We have records for 68,253 objects on our collections database, however,
please note that the Museum has no clear definition of what an object is
(for example, is a suit of armour 1 object, or is a number of objects),
and that the figure is largely meaningless.
Head of Information and Research Services
