The Lost Gallery Project, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, has created a digitization centre in the Garstang Archaeology Museum of the School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology at the University of Liverpool.
As part of the project, the centre, which has a dedicated archivist and IT officer, will work with interns and volunteers to digitise images relating to John Garstang’s work in the near east, including images taken during his Hittite Survey of Anatolia (1907) and his excavations of Sakçagözü (Sakje-Geuzi), Turkey (1908-1911) and make them available online.
The Museum holds around 3500 images relating to the archaeological work of John Garstang in Egypt, Sudan and the near east dating from 1900 to 1936. His collections form part of the photographic archive of the Museum which contains over 30 thousand images relating to the work of the School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology and its predecessors dating from the early 20th century.
