St Giles’ Files Ep.11: Who keeps history (and where)?

In this episode, Stephen introduces two objects, oddly both arm bones, that St Giles’ might have- or could have- had and goes on to introduce some objects from St Giles’ that currently reside in museums. In a slightly shorter than usual episode, Stephen introduces the topic of who keeps history, specifically objects, and is there anyone who decides what objects we should throw away? Golly, tricky question.

We ended up just googling relics. This is a good example of what Stephen means by a jewel-encrusted display. https://c8.alamy.com/comp/F2DYRX/arm-relic-of-st-benedict-saint-benedict-parish-1700-benediktbeuren-F2DYRX.jpg
