15 facts 41 objects

The 15 facts 41 objects exhibtion is on semi-permanent display in the RJ Boulton Archive Room. Many of the objects were chosen by pupils and Old Breconians for the exhibition; others were chosen to fill gaps in the time-line. All of them tell something of the long history of Christ College from its earliest foundation to the present day.

In the coming months, 41 objects will be added to the CCB Community Hub. The exhibition objects are numbered in chronological order but, just like memories, they will randomly appear in these pages: sometimes they will be linked to other stories; sometimes they will be tenuously connected to a story or another object.

Any community that has evolved from three separate institutions over more than 475 years will have a history that is complex to tell. For a school community there is the added dimension of a changing population, and each Old Breconian will have their own unique memory and perception of Christ College.

15 facts 41 objects doesn't claim to tell everyone’s story but, beginning with the ‘h’ and ending with the portrait of Henry VIII, 15 facts 41 objects celebrates the changes and continuity that have together shaped Christ College since 1541.
