Heidelberg University houses a number of top-class collections of high scientific value. Some of them have been consolidated at the HCCH.

These include the Collection of Casts and Classical Antiquities (supervised by the Institute for Classical Archaeology), the Egyptian Collection (supervised by the Institute for Egyptology), the Uruk Warka Collection (on permanent loan from the German Archaeological Institute and supervised by the Institute for Assyriology) and the Numismatic Collection (supervised by the Department of Ancient History and Epigraphy). Together, these collections contain numerous artefacts from very different cultures, regions and epochs from the earliest writing in Mesopotamia and Egypt, to advanced Mediterranean civilizations and as far as late Christian Antiquity.
