Swansea University Object Lifecycle Project

As part of their degrees, Swansea University 2nd year students take a module called ‘Introduction to Ancient Egyptian Archaeology’. They are required to study an object in the Egypt Centre and write a 3000-4000 word essay outlining the lifecycle of an object from its production to current display. Here are some previous essays as submitted (please note they have not been edited).
