The Lux Project

Students working in the labThe Lux Project was conceived of in Spring 2017 as a means of making a collection of antiquities (the Hetherington Collection) held by the Department of Anthropology at the University of Winnipeg accessible to scholars and to the general public. Our goal is to create a database of digital images of the collection, research the individual items, and find out more about how the Hetherington collection came to U of W. Our plans include teaching modules to complement the Manitoba junior high curriculum and local outreach to raise the profile of the study of the ancient Mediterranean in and around Winnipeg.
