Bentham's Mummified Head

While visiting Bentham's Auto-Icon at University College, London, I learned that it is a MYTH that King's College students kidnapped the head and played a game of soccer with it.

It turns out that they only kidnapped the head and demanded that a ransom of 10 pounds be donated to charity.

The head is now kept in the college safe.

What else do they have in there?
