From The Guardian:

His wonderful things include buttons and coins, the wrapper from a 17th-century pack of tobacco from a shop just outside the abbey walls, scraps of animal bone from workmen’s lunches, a medieval leather knife sheath, a 17th-century playing card, one patten – a 15th-century wooden and leather overshoe – and Rodwell’s favourite, invitations to the coronation of Queen Anne in 1702.
