Description

This exhibition features an important collection of Early Bronze Age vessels recovered by Professor Paul Lapp’s excavations at Bab edh-Dhra in the Dead Sea plain of southern Jordan, along with selected works from the Australian Institute of Archaeology.

Exploring the role of objects from burials and the mortuary traditions of the ancient Near East, the exhibition also considers the distribution of the Bab edh Dhra finds and the innovative solution proposed by Paul Lapp’s widow Nancy Lapp to the issues around the ‘Storage Wars’ and ‘curation crisis’ in archaeological collections management.
