The John Elliott Classics Museum houses one of the University’s most significant and valuable cultural collections. The first items were acquired more than a century ago, but the heart of the collection, pottery displaying the development of ancient Greek artistic styles, was begun in 1954. Today the Museum has expanded to include Egyptian, Roman And Etruscan artefacts, particularly relating to the daily lives of ancient people. Highlights include an Egyptian tomb door and a Roman military sword.
