The department possesses modest collections of study materials that are employed for teaching, training, and research purposes. These include collections of Greek and Roman potsherds, Italian potting clays, reproductions of Roman coins, specimens of Roman construction materials, a sizable assemblage of Byzantine pottery and botanical material from Emeq Hefer on long-term loan from Israel Antiquities Authority, and a large assemblage of Chalcolithic pottery and stone tools from the Olesh site in Israel.
