The Archaeology Room, Butts Wynd

Location: The Archaeology Room, School of Classics, Swallowgate, Butts Wynd, St Andrews, KY16 9AL

The University’s archaeology collection includes important examples of prehistoric worked flint and a collection of nearly 200 Cypriot artefacts dating from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine Period. Together the artefacts provide fascinating glimpses into the ancient world – from trade, technology and consumption to burial, beliefs and artistic expression. The collection is used extensively for hands-on teaching and outreach, with items shown regularly in temporary exhibitions at the Museum of the University of St Andrews (MUSA). As a result of a research collaboration between the School of Classics and MUSA, ‘Through A Glass Darkly’, many of these objects are now available online as 3D digital models: www.sketchfab.com/bridges
