    I’m always fascinated by the findings in the hypothetical house and look forward to seeing if anything else has slipped into a forgotten corner.

    I love the long list of artefacts in the second ad, especially “squirrel houses, chains and collars”. Did people keep squirrels as pets? Or perhaps catch them and fatten them up to eat!

    Umbrelloes! Mahogany voiders!

    (That is indeed a great list.)
