Cypriot Copper: Mysteries of the Bronze Age
Aside from contemporary Egyptian texts, there is little or no documentary evidence about the Bronze Age people of Cyprus. These pages contain images of some of the more interesting copper and bronze objects from the Bronze Age Cypriot collections in the Antiquities Department of the Ashmolean.
The Burgon Archive Project
Thomas Burgon (1767-1838) was a merchant who traded between London, Greece, and Turkey, and Smyrna in particular. During his lifetime he collected and documented over 300 artifacts, many of which are now in the British Museum. To document his collection he created watercolour paintings of his collections, and these have ended up in the Ashmolean Museum.
