This collection of historical artifacts has been assembled since 1987 by Doug and Amy Strong. The focus of the collection is medieval Europe but the collection also included objects from cultures before and after the medieval period. The main bulk of the collection ranges from the Roman period to the period of the English Civil War (1640s.)
The pieces are of every type though a strong emphasis has been placed on buckles and spurs. Both the collection of spurs and the collection of buckles are among the largest private collections of these items outside of Europe.
