Part of National Museums Liverpool
More than 1,300 items from our significant Egyptology collection. The full collection is one of the largest in the UK with 16,000 items spanning from the Prehistoric (c.5300 BC) to the end of the Byzantine Period (642 AD).
Building works have now begun on an exciting new project to develop our ancient Egypt gallery, enabling us to tell the fascinating story of how Liverpool acquired its world-renowned ancient Egyptian collection.

Description: Excavation directed by Flinders Petrie for the British School of Archaeology in Egypt. The museum gave financial sponsorship and in return received a share of the finds that were allowed to be exported by the Egyptian authorities. The committee of the British School of Archaeology in Egypt donated 21 objects that were accessioned on 4 April 1907, accession series 4.9.07.8-28. All but 1 of the pottery soul-houses survived the fire which destroyed the museum in 1941. The excavtions were published in Flinders Petrie, 'Gizeh and Rifeh' (London, 1907).
