King John’s House has a fascinating collection of artifacts from around the Romsey area varying from a fossilised Mammoth tooth; to medieval graffiti; to items from the old Moody shop on Church Street; to war medals and memorabilia. As of July 2015 we are starting up an Object of the Week Project, accessible online, which will highlight items from our collection to give you that little bit more information.  You can access this information below, as well as on Twitter and Facebook. If you would like a closer look, or have any questions, please drop by or contact us.
