About the repository
Welcome to the British Museum Research Repository. Explore articles, books and datasets published by leading researchers at the British Museum. The British Museum actively promotes academic research of the highest quality by its own staff, and supports the research of others. This research is intended to advance the care, display and public understanding of the history of humanity as represented by the objects in the British Museum's collection, and to help people learn, understand and be inspired by human history through objects. Our repository is part of the British Library’s pilot Shared Repository service alongside Tate, Kew, National Museums Scotland and Museum of London Archaeology.
