From its foundation onwards, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has been the recipient of countless objects generously donated by scholars, collectors, travellers, adventurers or simply members of the public.

The Museum’s incredible collection of art, artefacts and material culture owes a huge debt to these many donors, whose objects live on in the exhibitions, research and teaching that are the Museum’s reason for being.

If you have an object or collection that you may wish to donate or bequeath to the Museum, we would invite you to speak to the relevant collections manager to find out more:

Archaeology: Imogen Gunn
Anthropology: Rachel Hand
Photographic Collections: Jocelyne Dudding

If you are unsure which department you should contact, or if the object(s) you are interested in donating range across multiple subject areas, please contact the Museum Administrator via email, by calling +44 (0)1223 333510, or by writing to:
