The archaeological collection is the primary repository of ancient Irish artefacts.
The collection is an indispensable source for researchers into the development of Irish civilization from prehistoric times until the end of the Middle Ages and beyond.
Core collections assembled in the late 18th and 19th centuries by the Royal Dublin Society and the Royal Irish Academy have expanded over the last 100 years to number in excess of two million objects.
