The Brenchley Collection is an excellent new learning resource created by the History and American Studies Department at Canterbury Christ Church University with Maidstone Museum. The project has digitised over 200 fascinating objects, collected by Kent born 19th Century explorer Julius Brenchley, on to a virtual museum that provides information about Mr Brenchley’s travels and the Native American tribes he met.
