Institute of Archaeology Collections
The Institute of Archaeology houses fine teaching and reference collections. They include prehistoric ceramics and stone artefacts from many parts of the world as well as collections of Classical Greek and Roman ceramics. There are extensive collections of archaeobotanical and zooarchaeological material which act as a primary source for the identification of plant and animal remains. Collections of minerals and other materials form part of the teaching resource for the study of early technology. Western Asiatic material includes the famous Petrie collection of Palestininan artefacts excavated by Sir Flinders Petrie, and from Jericho, material excavated by the renowned Kathleen Kenyon.
