    Of course the nation is 'about more than just its capital.'

    But also there is no real justification in my opinion for concentrating all of the collection at York, since the nation is about more than just the geographical centre.


    If there is insufficient display space at York, then surely it makes good sense to display parts of the collection at sites dispersed around the realm.

    Many items are of course dispersed around the country, thus all of the collection is not in York, even small museums such as the accessible Stainmore have exhibits on loan, surplus exhibits have been sent to remote coastal locations such as Swanage.
