December 5th marks the grand opening of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum in the newly renovated Gilman Hall. The basis of the collection was compiled in 1882 and has grown continuously over the years. The most recent addition is a portion of the Eton College Myers Collection of Egyptian objects that is on loan to the University.

In 1984, a partial catalog of the collection was published. Although this book is long out of print, the library does have a few copies for your perusal.

So, please visit the Museum in December! And if you’re interested in exploring archaeology of the ancient world in more depth, try the libraries’ research guides in Near Eastern Studies and Classics.
