Part of National Museums Liverpool
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).
One of my favourite parts of being a curator is the detective work done in storerooms, archives and libraries.
