The Vasile Parvan Institute of Archaeology in Romania holds thousands of photographic materials. The archive is a source of information for archaeological research and monument recording and restoration throughout Romania in the period 1864-1918.
The Vasile Parvan Institute of Archaeology holds the photographic collections of the former National Museum of Antiquities archive. The glass-plate negatives and paper prints, including the 19th century albumen print, reflect the work of the museum’s photographers, archaeologists and the photo archive of the Department of Archaeology of the University of Bucharest, destroyed during WWI. The photographs show key actors in the intellectual, archaeological and historical community of the 19th and early 20th centuries, along with the products of their work in archaeological research, conservation and restoration.
