Songburrow Hall is arguably home to the finest collection of mathoms in the Shire (the less said about Brombard Foxtail and them amateurs in the Mathom House, the better). Until recently, the mathoms have been kept stored away safely, without easy access for visitors to the hall. However, to foster the development of hobbit scholarship and historical studies, this is about to change. These pages gives a catalogue of the items currently on display in Songburrow Hall. Over time, the exhibition will also be extended with collected tales about the mathoms and how they were recovered. The tales will be written down in books which will be easily accessible for scholars and guests to the hall. Additionally, the members of the Order will be happy to tell you stories of the mathoms that are closest to their hearts. Especially if, er, motivated with copious amounts of solid hobbit food. Pies, sausages and biscuits are particular favourites. We would like to extend our thanks to all hobbits who have helped us recover these mathoms over the years. Know that we'll keep looking for more items that rightfully belong in the Shire. We are also particularly grateful to the Thain in Tuckborough for allowing us to use his library for research and studies. For enquiries, be it about the complete mathom collection, individual mathoms or generally about hobbit customs and history, just ask one of the members of The Order.

OOC information To help keep the "mathom" theme of the Order going, this is a thread where we aim to collect all information about the mathoms we have collected over the years, as well as those we find in the future. The listing is likely incomplete as of know (in particular, the "special mathom" listing will likely miss mathoms like poems, "RP" items etc.). Please add missing mathoms here to the thread, so we can add to the collection. Additionally, we'd love to get mathom stories related to many of the items here. If there is a mathom you recovered yourself, please add the associated story here. We'll also try gather tales from our "mathom nights" here as well. Links to the tales can easily be added to the listings above, should the thread grow long.
