Curator’s diary, Friday 20th June

Scorpion amuletA busy week at the Museum preparing materials for forthcoming events: Bug Day tomorrow (June 21st, 11am-4pm), where I will be showing ancient Egyptian bug related artefacts (scorpion amulets, faience fly necklaces, relief carvings of bees etc.) next to the real thing; the Ancient Egypt Summer School, taking place at the KNH-Centre for Biomedical Egyptology and the Manchester Museum next week (23-27 June); and developing a handling collection for the gallery, which will be run by the Museum volunteers.

We also had a number of meetings related to the gallery redevelopment, where we discussed a potential Egypt and Africa day, looking at Egypt from the African viewpoint, and began to investigate funding sources for the gallery redevelopment.
