Out of the Vaults

The Royal Ontario museum is probably Canada's Premier museum with its Egyptian and Dinosaur collections. The Egyptian collection was founded by Charles Currelly and a number of prominent citizens.

Mr. Currelly worked with great men excavating in Egypt like Flinders Petrie and Eduoard Naville and was allowed to help himself to artifacts in the storerooms of the Egypt Exploration Fund in order to build a collection for Canada.

Out of the Vaults now on at the R.O.M.
