A boat, a mask and a leather football are just three of the 10 objects chosen to tell the story of Kent's history.

Martin Crowther, from Canterbury Museums introduces the project

They are part of the wider A History of the World project, in which the BBC, British Museum and local museums are in partnership to tell the history of the county.

All objects can be seen at the participating museums.

Members of the public can upload details and photographs of objects they feel have a local or global appeal.

Curator Ken Reedie of Canterbury Museums which is co-ordinating the project for Kent museums said: "It's a fantastic opportunity for people to learn more about where they live through objects connected to its development and its place in the world."
