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.

Objects are being rehoused as they are transported to the museum space. Here are some objects that were rehoused last week. The three ceramic bowls required special custom mounts to fully support their unique shapes. The ceramic fragments, however, did not require special housing and only needed to be placed in polyethylene bags for protection.

Special thanks to our work study student Dane for helping me!
