‘Wonderful Things’: Ancient Egypt - Collected, Curated and Displayed

Saturday 6 June 2020, 10.00AM to 4.30pm

This course will explore how objects in key Egyptology collections have been discovered, acquired, and displayed over time - from romantic stories of adventure in the time of antiquarian collectors, to a discussion of modern controversies and debates. We will explore the history of exhibitions and collections at the British Museum, and look at the work of key figures such as Belzoni, Carter and Petrie - highlighting the stories of some famous objects, as well as some lesser known gems.
