Tuesday 6th May

Back in after the Bank Holiday on what feels like the first day of summer. Spent the day setting up the Egypt at the Manchester Museum blog, refining the Manchester Museum – Ancient Egypt Facebook Group with my volunteer Shawn, and arranging to talk to the Youth Board at the Museum on Saturday about the plans to redevelop the galleries. We’re half way through a year of research and consultation, and have begun to collate the results of the public consultation days we held in March and April. In addition to these events, we are talking to schools, specialist and cultural groups, students and academics to see what they want froma set of new galleries on ancient Egypt. Feel free to post your thoughts on displaying Egypt in museums on this blog.

Stopped by the comments board on the Afterlife Gallery to see what people think of the newly covered mummies – some rumbles of discontent there…
