Summary

"50 objects 50 stories is a celebration of storytelling. Fifty objects from the Nicholson Museum's collection have been chosen, not for the archaeological significance or for their aesthetic beauty, but for the often facsinating story they have to tell. The Nicholson Museum, founded in 1860, is home to the largest collection of antiquities in Australia, with artefacts coming from Greece, Italy, Egypt, Cyprus, Northern Europe and the Middle East. 50 objects 50 stories is also a celebration of a man, and of the museum he founded, Sir Charles Nicholson."--Cover verso.
