Staten Island Museum at CSI:
Archaeology Study Collection for Ancient and Medieval Civilizations

The Staten Island Museum's Archaeology Study Collection contains several hundred artifacts formerly on loan to the CSI Library from the Staten Island Museum, since April 2010 returned to the Museum. The Collection was assembled over many years since the late 19th and early 20th centuries, mainly through gifts by Island families to the Institute.
The objects in the Collection enabled students to visualize life in the ancient and medieval worlds through archaeology in order to better understand these cultures. The goal of the curators was to have students use the objects as reference points in order to explore distant civilizations through various media: books, periodicals, videos, and web sites
