A study day presented by JOYCE FILER BA; Dip.Arch; M.Sc; M.Sc formerly Curator of Human & Animal Remains, Dept. of Ancient Egypt & Sudan, British Museum, London

Many people believe there cannot possibly be any more ancient tombs to be found in Egypt. Would you be surprised to learn that this is not true? There really are many more tombs, graves and mummies waiting to be discovered!

If you are interested in Egyptian archaeology and want to find out.... How we know where to find burials in Egypt? How we excavate and record them? What techniques are used to examine burials? What happens to the mummies and objects we find? Then this introductory and fun study day will answer these questions and more! You can also test your knowledge in a fun practical session!

Cost: GBP40 (includes afternoon refreshments)
