Author: Eleanor Wilkinson

Eleanor Wilkinson cares for and manages the varied teaching collections in archaeology at MAA, facilitating access for lecturers and students. Outside of term her role can take her anywhere from co-curating exhibitions of the Mesolithic to running research projects on the Iron Age. Her personal interests lie in the history of collecting of ancient Egyptian material in the 19th and 20th centuries.
