Egypt societies visiting The Manchester Museum

Last weekend the Sussex Egyptology Society (http://www.egyptology-uk.com/) spent the weekend in the North West of England visiting the Egyptian collections at Bolton, Manchester and Liverpool.

At the Manchester Museum the group visited the galleries, stores  and had a handling session with material from Illahun/Kahun (pictured), with Joyce Tyldesley and myself.

The group also experienced Saturday night in Manchester, which made a lasting impression! Much praise to Mick Oakey for organising such a well-thought out  tour.

The Wirral Ancient Egypt Society will be visiting the Manchester Museum in May for a similar event.
