Happy New Year: Celebrating new beginnings as reflected in the Egypt Centre collection
Join me for another Curator’s Chats where we shall be discussing some of the objects within the Egypt Centre that may have been used to celebrate the ancient Egyptian New Year.
We will be taking a look into the major festivals held in the first month of the ancient Egyptian calendar including the infamous festival of drunkenness, and exploring the collection for artefacts and characters which may have helped the ancient festivities ‘go with a swing.
20th January – 3pm
For ages 18+
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Egypt Center has had to close, so we have started a new Egypt Centre Fundraising Lecture Series to generate income for the Museum. The much needed proceeds generated from these ticket sales will go directly to the Egypt Centre, and help us to continue operating during these difficult times.
Support you museum and join us for an exciting series of talks on variety of ancient Egyptian topics including the new discoveries from the Saqqara Saite Tombs Project!
As well as the online events above, you will find more to do on our learning from home page
(not just for kids)
