Bolton Museum

Posted on Sep 24, 2014

Bolton Museum houses an important collection of Ancient Egyptian material consisting of approximately 10,000 objects from 68 sites; of these, almost 1,000 objects are on display in a dedicated Egyptian gallery.

The majority of objects have been acquired through the museum’s sponsorship of excavating bodies such as the Egypt Exploration Society and the Egyptian Research Account, and have an archaeological provenance; Bolton’s involvement with the EES dates back to 1884, and continues to the present day.
