Object Analysis e-learning resource

 

This e-learning resource is an online application provided by the Petrie Musuem to all teachers and learners that allows users to interact with 3D objects to improve their access to the objects they are analysing. It also allows students to write detail descriptions of the objects in a form of a catalogue.

The Petrie Museum houses one of the largest archaeological collections in the world for Egypt and Sudan. It is named after William Matthew Flinders Petrie (1853-1942), appointed in 1892 as first UCL Edwards Professor of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology. Over three-quarters of the material comes from excavations directed or funded by Petrie, or from purchases he made for university teaching. More information about the museum itself can be found at the Petrie Museum homepage.
