⌘ Institute of Egyptology “Georg Steindorff”

The Egyptian Museum and Institute are named after Georg Steindorff.

The history of University of Leipzig’s Egyptian Museum (recently moved to the Krochhochhaus, Leipzig) starts when in 1840 the university purchased their first sarcophagus. After that the collection kept increasing, and in 1874, the Egyptian museum split from the Antiquities Museum. The collection was further expanded by Georg Steindorff’s excavations at Giza and puchases in Egypt. Sadly, a WWII bomb attack destroyed the university’s Egyptian institute, and with that, part of the museum’s collection.

The Egyptian Museum’s collection spans more than five millenia, from the predynastic cultures of Egypt up to the Late period.

Most notable in the Egyptian collection of the University is the ‘Ebers Papyrus’, a medical papyrus purchased by George Ebers, and now in the university’s library and a small limestone head of Nefertiti.
