As frustrating as it is to photograph amulets given their small size, focus stacking helps to produce beautifully detailed images. Here are four examples in @TheEgyptCentre collection, including a rare one of Sopdu-Hor (PM18), Nephthys (LIH11), Min (PM16), and Mut (PM20). https://t.co/LfSTRSezOC

I've not been able to go into @TheEgyptCentre since March, but using a combination of Zoom and the Online Collection by @Abaset_Colls I can continue to help @DrKenGriffin check objects in the galleries, updating measurements in real time. 2020 is a year for being resourceful! https://t.co/EYfEE6qXB5

For Tano, see the excellent publication of the antiquities trade, which is now available to download for free! https://t.co/cOWlVBgUdV

It's always nice when an object in @TheEgyptCentre collection carries a Wellcome number (R14098/1936), which often provides new info. This fish-shaped palette was purchased by Capt. Johnston-Saint, on behalf of Wellcome, from the well-known dealer Nicolas Tano (Cairo) in Feb 1931 https://t.co/vKK5Bxpn1N

I spent yesterday photographing objects in the animals case of @TheEgyptCentre. It's always nice to spot something you've never noticed before. For example, check out the golden eyes of this copper alloy cat! #TheGoldenOne https://t.co/6vq4umzSp2

Check out @TheEgyptCentre's mummified crocodile, freshly photographed and edited. Given to Sir Henry Wellcome in 1927 by Flinders Petrie as part of the distribution of ERA finds. X-rayed many years ago with a small 🐊 present. @DrRichJohnston, would be great to scan this! https://t.co/pDk308GpTw

69 new photos just added to @TheEgyptCentre online catalogue, including this beautiful Red Lustrous Wheel-Made (RLWM) spindle bottle. New photography of the object was requested by the Robert Merrillees, the leading authority on these, who spotted it on the catalogue. #Impact https://t.co/zPy4N5Tc8y

Rephotographed this nice offering tray in @TheEgyptCentre  today. But what's the provenance written on the back? It's always frustrated me! Perhaps a badly written Coptos? Purchased by Wellcome in 1906 from the Rustafjaell collection. https://t.co/5KproRUGe8
