According to the documentation access officer, Craig Sherwood, in 2012, the museum has "in the region of 203 objects or groups of objects from the EEF during that time. This breaks down into 6 separate deposits:

- In 1887 a group of 38 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us on the 12th December via EES founder Miss Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards. They came from various sites/excavations including Nebesha, San-el-Hagar, Tell el-Maskhuta and the temple at Tell Karmus,

 

- In 1888 a group of 17 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us by the Egypt Exploration Fund on 17th May. They came from various sites/excavations including Tell el Yahudiyeh, Tell Dafana and Naukratis.

 

- In 1900 the largest group of 107 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us by the Egypt Exploration Fund on 3rd October. These came from excavations at Abydos between 1899 and 1900.

 

- In 1905 a group of 15 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us by the Egypt Exploration Fund on 8th August. These came from excavations at the Temple of Montuhotep, Deir-el-Bahari.

 

- In 1911 a group of 2 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us by the Egypt Exploration Fund on 7th June. These came from excavations at Naukratis, Tell Dafana and the Temple of Montuhotep at Deir-el-Bahari.

 

- In 1914 the final deposit of 24 objects (or groups of objects) were deposited with us by the Egypt Exploration Fund on 7th August. These came from excavations at Abydos and Antinoe.

 

As far as I know we have received no deposits from the British School of Archaeology in Egypt - all the above deposits are attributed to the EEF.

 

.... I have to note, with regret, that I see from my records that some of the objects listed have not been located in any recent audits. Presumably some have been discarded through deteriorating condition or have been misidentified or simply lost."
