FORTHCOMING TALKS PROGRAMME

Posted February 28th, 2010 by Dylan

My forthcoming talks programme is constantly changing, and I may get bookings at relatively short notice, as well as others well in the future.
I appreciate that I have not been very good at keeping this page up to date, but I will try harder!

CURRENTLY (End of October 2018), the programme is as follows:

NORTHAMPTON. Monday December 3rd 2018. 7pm
Great Expeditions to God’s Land and Punt.
Hatshepsut, the female pharaoh, is celebrated for her expedition to the land of Punt. Launching a voyage on the Red Sea was a colossal achievement in itself, however, involving large numbers of men crossing Egypt’s barren Eastern Desert. We look at port facilities constructed in the Old and Middle Kingdoms, and the clues from expedition records as to why certain pharaohs launched such massive expeditions.

TAUNTON. Saturday June 8th 2019, 2pm
.The Royal Cache. Discovering the Royal Mummies and their Tomb.
One of the very greatest finds ever made in Egyptology was of a hidden tomb containing the mummies of famous kings and queens of ancient Egypt, such as: Ahmose Nefertari, Thutmose III, Seti I, Ramesses II and Ramesses III. It was also, however, one of the most poorly recorded and understood. Recent work on the tomb helps us to understand better what was found.
