Zoom into Museums: The Treasures of Ancient Egypt

Dr Joanne Backhouse

For those of you missing your summer vacation, join me in my next Zoom class. We will visit five wonderful Egyptology collections from the comfort of our own lounge. We will discuss how these collections were established and examine some star exhibits in terms of context and production. We will also view some hidden gems. The course will also show you how to access online catalogues and resources of the museums. Although we cannot visit in person, this is the best substitute and is an ideal preparation for future visits!

There will be a lecture, a short comfort break and then time for questions.  A course handbook and articles for further reading will be provided by email.
