Artifacts in the De Gregorio Study Collection of Antiquities are powerful representations of the ancient world. Spanning hundreds of thousands of years, sweeping across a multitude of tribal alliances, empires, and continents, the artifacts represent one of the greatest achievements of humankind, the creation of written languages.

The truly extraordinary collection donated to Bucknell University by Dr. and Mrs. Bart De Gregorio, encompasses alphabets and languages passed from one civilization to another through clear cultural transmissions.

The images in this collection are viewable through Bucknell Digital Collections.
