The work of an outstanding conservator, Pamela Hatchfield of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, revealed the earliest time capsule in the US! Yay conservation and American history!

Congratulations to museum employee Molly Chisholm Martell as she finishes up her thesis (and Dean's Undergraduate Research Award supported) research project, "An Investigation of Elemental Biogenic Uptake: The Examination of Portable X-ray Fluorescence as a Method of Osteological Analysis". She graduates this December but will be around to continue her research in the spring. We'll miss her but look forward to hearing more from her as she moves on to new projects and places. — with Molly Chisholm Martell.

On Dec 11th, the Maryland area heard on WYPR about "Archaeology and the Ceramic Artist" from master potter Matthew Hyleck of Baltimore Clayworks. If you are a regular reader of the museum's Facebook page, you know that he is going to work with curator/conservator Sanchita Balachandran on a course next semester that attempts to recreate ancient Greek pottery. Exciting stuff!

Today is Emily's last day here in the museum (and, yes, we put her to work lining artifact boxes and making lids). Thank you, Emily, for all your contributions over the past two semesters. Congratulations on your graduation and we wish you all the best as you work towards a career in conservation.


James T. VanRenensselaer of Homewood Photography met his doppelgaenger at the museum today. Here is he is setting up for photography of a painted plaster mummy head from Roman Egypt and on loan to us from the Eton College Myers Collection, England. It was meant to be!


Happy 4th Birthday to Us!

While we aren’t marking the occasion with a celebratory cuneiform tablet, the way Paul Haupt, Professor of Semitic Languages at Johns Hopkins might have in 1901, we are thrilled to be 4!

Today is the 4th birthday of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum’s new museum facility. The new exhibit and seminar space has made a tremendous difference in how the collection can be viewed by the public, used by faculty for teaching, and researched and cared for by staff and students. If you haven’t been able to see the new facility, please stop by! We will be open this Saturday from noon to 4pm. (Sorry, no birthday cake in the museum, but you can get a great cup of coffee and a treat at the nearby café).
