  The Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum’s collection contains over 9,000 artifacts. Its teaching collection employs an interactive and interdisciplinary approach for students that bring to life these found objects in new ways.

Through a partnership with Baltimore Clayworks in 2015, students will attempt to recreate some of the museum’s most famous Greek objects. Sanchita Balachandran, Museum curator, conservator, and a lecturer, provides a curator’s perspective about the value of hands-on interaction with archaeological objects.
