Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology

The Petrie Museum houses approximately 80,000 artefacts and is one of the largest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology anywhere in the world. The collection illustrates life in the Nile Valley from prehistory, through Pharaonic to Roman and Islamic times and is the richest in the personal items that illustrate life and death in ancient Egypt.

The collection includes the world's earliest surviving dress (around 2,800BC), decorative art from Akhenaten's famous city at Amarna and one of the largest collections of life-like Roman mummy portraits.
