Anything that has to do with people and how they shape the world can be called ‘culture‘. That means that we get some unexpected items in Europeana, and my pet example is the quite large collection of soup dishes (soepborden, Suppenteller) we find in Europeana. Some have quite a highbrow background, such as the dishes used at the High Table of King’s College in Cambridge, others are decidedly more common, and are used as museum examples of everyday lives in bygone eras. Some fine examples from England, Germany, France, Holland, Italy, Russia and Denmark are:
