Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology Museums
Malet Place, University College London
The Petrie Museum houses an estimated 80,000 objects, making it one of the greatest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. It illustrates life in the Nile Valley from prehistory through the time of the pharaohs, the Ptolemaic, Roman and Coptic periods to the Islamic period.
The Petrie Museum is a university museum. It was set up as a teaching resource for the Department of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology at University College London (UCL). The collection grew to international stature in scope and scale thanks mainly to the extraordinary excavating career of the first Edwards Professor, William Flinders Petrie (1853-1942).
The Petrie Museum is attached to the Institute of Archaeology, University College London (UCL). The Institute offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including courses on the archaeology of Egypt and Sudan.
