Abstract:
The Museum of El-Salaam School was known as "the Faculty of Americans" and located near Assiut University in Assiut governorate, about 380 Km south of Cairo. The Museum consists of two large rooms; the first room includes Pottery vessels, Oil lamps, Ushabti, Funerary cones, Canopic jars, Wooden and Basalt statues, Funerary steals, Soul houses, Glass wares and wooden bolt-lock. The second room includes Coffins, Psalms of David and Mummified animals. The contents of the museum came from the excavation of Petrie at Rifeh, as a donation to the museum by Sayed Pasha Khashaba(a). The finds are exhibited within old wooden display-windows and labeled with two numbers, the Petrie's excavation number, and the Ministry of Antiquities' recording number. The display-windows are arranged spatially in alphabetical ordering, A, B, C, D, etc. The displayed pottery finds are the dominant feature among the Museum's collection, which date back to different Egyptian historical periods.
