The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology can be found in the grounds of the University of London.

It was started by the Victorian Amelia Edwards in the mid 19th-century, and expanded by the excavations of famous archaeologist William Petrie. It now has a vast collection of 80,000 objects.

The items come from both Egyptian and Sudanese history, and range from Roman burial finds in Hawara, to finds found at Amarna – the city of Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten.
