Strange Ancient Objects

I have a part-time job working for a museum, with exhibits from all over the world. The other day, when re-organising the storeroom, I found an ancient chest containing the following objects, all showing great age, yet well preserved: a horseshoe a container of seeds (possibly fruit pips) a large claw (lab analysis suggests feline) a piece of keratin (lab analysis suggests from a horn) a lock of long blonde (apparently human) hair a large unidentified reptilian scale a large black feather a packet containing 5 types of hair (lab analysis suggests equine, bovine, porcine, canine and from an unidentified herd animal) The chest itself gave no clues to its origin. What, if anything, can I ascertain from the chestís contents?
