Anthropology and Archaeology are currently performing research on the following areas referring to Ancient Egypt:

  • Honorary Associates – one working at Abydos with the Michigan University ancient cemeteries project and one with Macquarie University at Thebes
  • Current collection focus: analysing botanical remains stored in a sycamore box, part of the collections since the 1890s.
