WG Hardy Classics Museum

The W. G. Hardy Museum of Ancient Near Eastern and Classical Antiquities (The Classics Museum) was first established in the Department of Classics in 1975. The objects in the museum, mainly glass, pottery and coins, were acquired either by purchase or by donation to serve as a resource for courses taught by the department. Over the years further donations have added significantly to the size and quality of the collection. The museum was originally located in the Humanities Centre but following the merger of Classics and History in 1995 the collection was moved to its current location in the Tory Building Room 2-89 where it was officially re-opened in 2002 by Dr. Ralph Jackson of the British Museum. The museum is kept open by student volunteers during the university year (September to April) but can be visited at other times by arrangement with the Department of History and Classics.
