SEAHA and the Freud Museum are delighted to announce that the Museum is joining the family of SEAHA partner institutions.

The Museum was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Austria following the Nazi annexation in 1938. The centrepiece of the museum is Freud’s study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime. It contains Freud’s remarkable collection of antiquities: Egyptian; Greek; Roman and Oriental. Almost 2,000 items fill cabinets and are arranged on every surface.

The Museum is already involved in one of the SEAHA student projects, looking at 3D imaging and NIR photogrammetry of a number of its fascinating objects, in collaboration with UCL and University of Brighton.
