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).

Description: Publication of excavations at Abydos between the years 1906 and 1909 by Professor John Garstang of the Institute of Archaeology at Liverpool. These excavations were never published in anything like a complete or adequate form, and the objects unearthed by Garstang have, since their recovery, been widely scattered. The major part of this thesis is an attempt to reconstruct, as closely as was then possible, the work of 1906-1909.
