The IEAA is dedicated to the study of the art and culture of ancient Egypt. The collection spans the entire range of ancient Egyptian history and prehistory -- ca. 100,000 B.C.E. through 700 C.E.
The Institute's collection of more than 1400 ancient Egyptian antiquities includes mummies, religious and funerary items, jewelry, sculpture, and objects from everyday life.
The IEAA collection of artifacts are housed in the Art Museum of the University of Memphis, where approximately 200 objects, most ranging in date from 3800 B.C.E. to 700 C.E., are on permanent exhibition.
