With over 16,000 items this is one of the largest Egyptology collections in the UK and is of international importance. This is a very representative collection of ancient Egyptian material culture that spans from the Prehistoric (c. 5300 BC) to the end of the Byzantine Period (642 AD). There are 1300 items on display and the collection is actively used in research and teaching, mainly through links with Liverpool University, which is the largest teaching centre of Egyptology in the UK.
