Malta's national museum of archaeology is housed in one of the most stylish baroque buildings still distinguishable in Valletta, more precisely at the Auberge de Provence, in Republic Street. The ground floor hosts artefacts from Malta's unique neolithic period, which spans from the ghar dalam phase to the tarxien phase. Artefacts of particular distinction are The Sleeping Lady and The Venus of Malta. The display includes numerous artefacts used as implements, human and animal figurines, as well as personal decorative items. A number of monumental architectural altars illuminate the art of the ancient prehistoric craftsmen.

This book is the first study of the political and social values underpinning interest in Irish archaeology and the establishment of the first public or national museum in Ireland, the Dublin Museum of Science and Art later re-established as the National Museum of Ireland. It examines the value systems and ideological beliefs inherent in the museum building process and shows that the complexity of Irish history and politics is mirrored in the range of attitudes to the Irish past. These are revealed in the care and ownership of the material remains of antiquity. The social and political role of museum collections is explored through the history of museum provision in Dublin. Elizabeth Crooke shows how a certain vision of the Irish nation has shaped and continues to shape, the core of archaeology and the work of museums in contemporary Ireland.

Excerpt: Valletta is the capital of Malta, colloquially known as Il-Belt (English: ) in Maltese. It is located in the central-eastern portion of the island of Malta and the historical city has a population of 6,098. The name "Valletta" is traditionally reserved for the historic walled citadel that serves as Malta's principal administrative district. However, Valletta, like many historical city centres, forms part of a larger continuous urban agglomeration; this is often referred to as "Greater Valletta." According to Eurostat, (Greater) Valletta has a population of 368,250 at the city level. Valletta contains buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as Knights Hospitaller. The city is essentially Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture in selected areas, though World War II left major scars on the city. The City of Valletta was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. The city is named for Jean Parisot de la Valette, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman...

Today, the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden is internationally known for its outstanding archaeological collections. Yet its origins lie in an insignificant assortment of artefacts used for study by Leiden University. How did this transformation come about? Ruurd Halbertsma has delved into the archives to show that the appointment of Caspar Reuvens as Professor of Archaeology in 1818 was the crucial turning point. He tells the dramatic story of Reuvens' struggle to establish the museum, with battles against rival scholars, red tape and the Dutch attitude of neglect towards archaeological monuments. This book throws new light on the process of creating a national museum, and the difficulties of convincing society of the value of the past.

Europe’s national museums have since their creation been at the centre of on-going nation making processes. National museums negotiate conflicts and contradictions and entrain the community sufficiently to obtain the support of scientists and art connoisseurs, citizens and taxpayers, policy makers, domestic and foreign visitors alike. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 assess the national museum as a manifestation of cultural and political desires, rather than that a straightforward representation of the historical facts of a nation. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 examines the degree to which national museums have created models and representations of nations, their past, present and future, and proceeds to assess the consequences of such attempts. Revealing how different types of nations and states – former empires, monarchies, republics, pre-modern, modern or post-imperial entities – deploy and prioritise different types of museums (based on art, archaeology, culture and ethnography) in their making, this book constitutes the first comprehensive and comparative perspective on national museums in Europe and their intricate relationship to the making of nations and states.
