How Roman Britain and Ur came to Ontario
Welcome to the virtual exhibit for
The Lost Collections
of the Ancient World
This is the story of a collection of artefacts from Mesopotamia and Roman Britain, which were re-discovered buried deep in the Museum of Ontario Archaeology's collections storage in January 2011.
A lucky set of circumstances led the Museum's education co-ordinator, Katie Urban, and archaeologist, Paige Glenen, both of whom have backgrounds in Greek, Roman and Near Eastern archaeology, to uncover these ancient treasures.
The big question - how did they come to be in Ontario, Canada?
