The Amaravati collection in the British Museum consists of over 120 different pieces. After the first explorations of the site by Colin Mackenzie, Sir Walter Elliot of the Madras Civil Service undertook excavations at the Amaravati stūpa in 1797 and transported the excavated pieces to Madras and british museum.
