Abstract

As the UCL Institute of Archaeology celebrates its 75th anniversary, it has begun to probe its role in the development of professional archaeology more seriously, a role illustrated (aptly) by the importance of photography and photographs at the Institute. This short article will explore two facets of the Institute’s relationship with photography – the acquisition of photographic collections and the investment made in photographic facilities. Amara Thornton begins with a short personal introduction to a photographic collection within the Institute’s archives, and Sara Perry continues with a history of the early years of the Institute’s photography department, giving special attention to its founder, Maurice ‘Cookie’ Cookson, the Institute’s first Lecturer in Archaeological Photography.
