Archaeological Museum

"And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away"

Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ozymandias

Prewitt-Allen Archaeological Museum

Corban University showcases over 900 items related to archaeology from the Middle East and Greece in the Prewitt-Allen Archaeological Museum. The museum owes its existence primarily to the labors of two men: Robert S. Allen and J. Franklin Prewitt who each contributed hundreds of volunteer hours to establish a depository for the benefit of Middle East studies.

The collection had its genesis in the work of Robert Allen, an adjunct instructor in archaeology from 1956 to 1969. It has been a part of Corban's Library throughout its existence.
