W.G. Hardy Collection of Ancient Near Eastern and Classical Antiquities

The W.G. Hardy Collection of Ancient Near Eastern and Classical Antiquities in the department of History and Classics contains important ancient Greek, Roman and Near Eastern objects, including coins, sculpture, pottery, and glass. The collection provides insights into the daily life and customs of the people of these ancient civilizations, and it is a valuable resource for Classics courses at the University of Alberta. Unique in Western Canada, it also serves as a window into some of the archaeological research by members of the Department of History and Classics.

As the University of Alberta is enacting additional safety measures regarding the state of public health emergency in Alberta, all museum collections will be closed until further notice.
