These posts will explore the people who have collected - indeed still collect - Egyptian material culture. It will develop a bibliography for the collecting of Egyptian antiquities. Our initial interest is in some of the late Victorian collectors of Egyptology, notably the Revd William MacGregor. However the Egypt Centre at Swansea University, where we are based, holds material collected by Sir Henry Wellcome including objects from older and now dispersed collections.
