About the Archive
The Griffith Institute Archive houses a diverse and significant collection which explores the wealth of Ancient Egypt, the jewel being Howard Carter's complete excavation records for the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun.
Born out of the personal collection of Francis Llewellyn Griffith, the first Professor of Egyptology at Oxford, the Archive has grown to be a highly respected and internationally recognised resource for Egyptologists, as well as scholars across a wide range of disciplines including archaeology, architecture and the history of art and science. There are more than 160 substantial groups of material, from complete excavation records to watercolours, photographs and correspondence. The scope of our records ranges from Egyptology's infancy at the beginning of the 19th century to the plethora of new media amongst our most recent accessions.
