De Gregorio Collection of Antiquities

Digital Image Collection

Introduction to the Collection

The De Gregorio Collection of Antiquities is a digital image archive representing a variety of artifacts that were donated to Bucknell University by Mr. and Mrs. Bart De Gregorio. These artifacts focus on the history of the written language.

This extraordinary collection encompasses wedge-shaped script on Babylonian cuneiform clay tablets, Egyptian hieroglyphs on papyrus, a Mesoamerican ceremonial implement carved on bone, Armenian illuminated manuscript scroll, and many other examples.

Metadata Schema

A locally-created metadata schema is used to support the De Gregorio Collection, which is loosely based on VRA Core 3.0.


The collection is available to the public.
