This portal provides an overview of the distributed Creswell collections. The majority of excavation at the site took place prior to any established museum at Creswell Crags, resulting in most researchers either retaining the material and integrating it into their own collections or donating it to other institutions.

In 2011, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation through the Museums Association funded a project to unite this material online for the first time. For further information on the collections please contact Maria Smith at the museum. For collections in the partner museums please contact them directly regarding access arrangements.
