The Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum (JHAM) is a teaching collection for the Johns Hopkins University community dedicated to the interactive and interdisciplinary study, research, preservation, and interpretation of archaeological and historical objects. The museum collections feature 12,000 objects from the geographic and cultural areas of the ancient Near East, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Mexico, Central America, and South America, as well as North America and prehistoric Europe. Some of the collection strengths include: Latin funerary inscriptions, the Mendes Israel Cohen Collection of Egyptian Antiquities, a nearly complete Roman surgical kit (shown at right), the Sidney Painter Collection of Roman Coins, a significant collection of prehistoric European and North American lithics, and a type collection of ceramics from ancient Cyprus.
