ROM Cultures anciennes explore les civilisations disparues et l’influence qu’elles exercent encore aujourd’hui. Depuis la préhistoire en Chine au système économique de l’Empire romain en passant par les innovations technologiques de la Mésopotamie, l’Antiquité nous aide à comprendre la diversité des expériences humaines.
Nos archéologues font des fouilles partout dans le monde; nos experts du Musée analysent et préservent nos collections; et nos experts et mordus de l’archéologie font connaître leurs opinions et facilitent la dissémination des données recueillies.
Managing Director, ROM Ancient Cultures
Rae Ostman is managing director for ROM Ancient Cultures.
I work with staff at the museum and partner organizations to create programs, exhibitions, digital media, and other projects that help us learn about civilizations of the past and their relevance today. On any given day, this can mean going into the storage rooms with ROM curators to choose archaeological artifacts to share with museum visitors, meeting with researchers at the University of Toronto to talk about projects we’re working on together, or making a web page to give people around the world a chance to participate in what we do.
Before joining the ROM, I worked in museums in the US, including the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY and the Exploratorium in San Francisco. I also earned a PhD in anthropological archaeology from New York University. At the ROM, I use my experience in museums and archaeology to create opportunities to learn about ancient cultures and connect with other people.
Help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of one of the America’s great archaeological treasures - the ruins of Altun Ha.

This instalment of my behind-the-scenes tour of what shapes a museum display began as an example of how museum collections are formed, but it may develop into a detective story as you’ll see…..
The James Menzies Chinese Research Fellowship was established in 2009 to promote scholarly research as it relates to the Royal Ontario Museum’s Chinese collection, with particular emphasis on the ROM’s Menzies collection. The Fellowship is open to Ph.D. candidates, both junior and senior scholars, from Canada and/or China.
