Major Events AND COURSES

 

13th Dec. 2014

FRIENDS OF THE PETRIE MUSEUM STUDY DAY

SECRETS REVEALED: ARTISTS AND EPIGRAPHERS IN EGYPT.

At the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. The invasion of Napoleon in 1798 sparked Western fascination with all things Egyptian and within a decade scholars were recording the surviving monuments before they disappeared. From their work came the earliest understandings of Egypt. This is the story of some of those unsung heroes who left us a wealth of material which has proved so invaluable to current researchers.

Speakers: Andrew Bednarski, Trica Usick and Lee Young.
