Archival Housing for Objects

Roman glass vessels currently in our study drawers.

The archival housing of objects in the museum collection allows them to be safely stored, easily accessible, and appreciated for their archaeological, aesthetic, historic and technological qualities. Here are a few examples of recently rehoused artifacts in their new storage containers.

Our drawers under the reading and writing case contain cuneiform tablets from the Ancient Near East and Roman brick stamps.
