More than 2700 items from our internationally significant Egyptology collection. The full collection is one of the largest in the UK with over 16,000 items spanning from the Prehistoric (c. 5300 BC) to the end of the Byzantine Period (642 AD).

Description: Excavations directed by Henri Frankfort for the Egypt Exploration Society resumed at Abydos in 1925. Only a summary of the results were published by Frankfort in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 16, pp. 213-219.
World Museum did not subscribe to this excavation but in 1956 the museum purchased much of Norwich Castle Museum's Egyptian collection which contained Egypt Exploration Society excavated material donated by the East Anglia Egyptian Society who subscribed to the EES excavations at Abydos and Amarna. We have 19 items from these excavations.
