Jennifer Torres is the Collections Technician of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum. Her primary duties include the rehousing and photography of the museum’s collection. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Florida, where she received her B.A. in Anthropology and Classical Studies in 2013. In 2015, she received her M.A. in Museum Studies with a concentration in Collections Management from the George Washington University.

The rehousing of the museum’s collection of amulets has officially begun! Each amulet is placed in its own archival-quality bag and tied to a piece of corrugated board. The amulets can then be stacked upright, saving some much needed space in our storage and are much easier to access. So far, 79 amulets have been rehoused. Special thanks to two of our student staff, Dane and Sami, for working so hard on this project!
