Research into Egypt and the Sudan at Manchester University

The Nile in the SudanThere are numerous ongoing research projects into Egypt and the Sudan, ancient and modern, at Manchester University, which the Museum showcases in one way or another, and which will contribute to the content development of the new Egypt/Archaeology gallery. For example, current research projects include the geomorphology of the Nile Vallery, analysis of fat residues in 12th Dynasty pottery held at the Museum to recreate the ancient diet, and studies of health and disease in ancient populations through studies of the Egyptian human remains.

More details of these research projects will follow – and please post information on your own research if it is related to Egypt and the Sudan at Manchester.
