Aarhus University Seal



Antikmuseet and its staff take part in several research projects with the leader cooperating with the Department of Classical Archaeology and the Centre for Museology.

Apulian pottery from the art market

The museum has begun a new project on Apulian pottery on loan from Italy, originating from an art dealer's warehouse where it was ransacked in 2014. We will both study the modern history of the objects that were presumably looted in South Italy and research and develop a new kind of digital publication of these kinds of illicit antiquities. Read more about the project.


The University Museum as a Learning Space

The Museum of Ancient Art and Archaeology works on various empirical projects investigating the university museum as a learning space. The museum’s communication initiative works as empirical data concerning an investigation of the university collections’ potential as learning tools for gymnasium schools and universities.

The Strategic Museum (2010-2012)

The museum’s leader has participated in the project The Strategic Museum financed by the Research Council for Communication and Culture. Together with lector Ane Hejlskov Larsen she has published on sponsorships at Danish museums.
