Wednesday 14th May – Kids and Copts

On Saturday Andrea, Curator of Community Exhibitions, and myself, met with the Manchester Museum Youth Board to talk about their ideas about the ancient world, in particular Egypt, Human Remains and the proposed content of the new galleries. The teenagers presented an excellent critique of the current galleries, and went on to discuss at length the issue of displaying Egyptian human remains, which the majority were in favour of, as long as a choice was provided.

Tomorrow I am heading to London to attend the Coptic Culture symposium taking place at the British Museum and in Stevenage, a good opprtunity to meet up with people involved with aspects of early Christian Egypt.
