History

This barrel was worn by Annie Edson Taylor when she performed a stunt no one else had ever done before; namely, going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The barrel resided in a museum for a while, but when it inspired a man to climb inside and try to fall off a large building, the artifact was neutralized and sent to Warehouse 13.

Used by Claudia during her escapades during the tie-in novel.

Effects

When the user climbs inside the barrel and uses it to jump off a high precipice, it will activate a barrier that will protect the user from long falls. However, the barrel wil eventually inspire the user to develop a reckless, daredevil attitude.
