The objects tell the story of the people of Bath and their achievements, and the evolution of the city from Roman times to the present day.

Objects range from a Bath chair to a fizzy pop factory; a wig scratcher to a giant plug and a collection of corsets, to the telescope used to discover Uranus.

Some of the treasures are well-known whilst others will truly surprise. The 99 objects have been chosen by a varied and independent panel. However, if you feel that a key object has been omitted, then you are able to put forward your own suggestion.

The object that receives the most votes will then become the hundredth object as chosen for by the people of Bath and announced at the end of the 2011.
