Tuesday 21 April 2015
Celebration in Ancient Egyptian Art
Lecturer: Lucy Gahlin
The ancient Egyptians liked nothing more than to feast and celebrate whenever the opportunity arose. We will explore the clothes and adornments worn, the food and drink consumed and the entertainment enjoyed and also view the "banqueting scenes" on the walls of the New Kingdom (c1550-1069 BC) non-royal tombs at Thebes.
