Egyptian treasures in the Nicholson Museum, Sydney

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


The Nicholson Museum, located in the grounds of the University of Sydney, houses what is arguably Australia's finest and most extensive collection of Egyptian antiquities. Spanning every period of Egyptian history from the Predynastic to Graeco-Roman era and beyond, the collection is remarkable for its depth and quality. Even more intriguing is how it came to be assembled in a country so far away from the Nile Valley.
