Archaeology and the Powerhouse Museum go back a long way. The most obvious examples are exhibitions focussing on archaeological material including '1000 Years of the Olympic Games', 'The Great Wall of China', and the recent, 'Spirit of Jang-in' from Korea.

Archaeology Week- ‘Pompeii of the north’ in Powerhouse’s Guildhall Collection

Paul Donnelly
There is currently great excitement in London as evidence of Roman lives - wonderfully preserved in the London mud - are being extracted by archaeologists. Among the material are hundreds of Roman shoes, jewellery, waxed wooden writing tablets with their writing styli, jewellery, cosmetic tools, part of the Temple of Mithras and of course, pottery galore.
