Carlotta - the museum database

The National Museums of World Culture The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities

The museum, located in Stockholm, houses Sweden's most important archaeological collections of ancient and historical relics from the Mediterranean countries. The collections contains 40 000 objects and almost all of these are available through Carlotta. In addition to these, you can search among 20 000 photographs. As a consequence of the fact that objects and photographs from the beginning were two separate databases with different purposes, the registers for objects are in English while the register for photographs is in Swedish.

The database currently contains...

17 268.
Objects, Cyprus
