Antiquities Museum

St Lucia

This fascinating little trove of ancient artefacts belonging to UQ and dating back 4000 years is one of the best kept secrets around and as such is like a private viewing chamber for the visitor who ventures there. Hidden upstairs in one of the Great Court Buildings, the small but comprehensive display of implements, trinkets, jewellery and household goods from the Mediterranean is well worth seeking out as a rare and intriguing glimpse into past civilizations.

Egyptian funereal masks and intricate beaded necklaces, a Roman lamp from 1st century AD, 3rd century exquisite Italian figurines, burial urns, Greek vases and miniature pottery from 500 BC, Roman tombstones, a jug from 640 BC and implements from the Iron Age are but a few of the well preserved relics to be seen.

The Department of Classics and Ancient History asks intending visitors to call ahead and advise them before coming.
