Objects of the Month (2000-2005)

 

Between May 2000 and September 2005 the Museum's web site highlighted a different object each month. During the course of the redevelopment this has been replaced by Objects Speak. Below is a gallery of links to restyled versions of the objects that are from the Department of Antiquities:
