A small exhibit from the permanent collection was reinstalled to complement a University course on ancient technology. First shown in 1996, the exhibit included examples of cast bronze objects, cold-worked metal vessels, and engraved, gilded, and enameled jewelry. Loom weights, spindle whorls, a weaving comb, and a textile fragment from Egypt represented textile making. Examples of wheel-made, mold-made, stamped and glazed pottery explored the manufacturing of pottery in the Greek and Roman world.
