Over the next year, ACCES (the Association of Curators of collections for Egypt and the Sudan, UK) will be running free practical workshops for non-specialist curators in three areas of Egyptian/Sudanese collections. These will be held at three different venues across the UK and will take the form of half-day events, lasting from 1pm until 4.30pm, including a break for tea and coffee.
The three workshops will be:
DISTRIBUTION LISTS (how Egyptian/Sudanese objects were divided between museum collections after they were excavated and how this information can be traced and used today) on Thursday 4th November 2010 at the offices of the Egypt Exploration Society (EES) in London.
OBJECT MARKS (the types of objects which carry excavators? markings and what information these marks provide) on Friday 7th January 2011 at the Garstang Museum, University of Liverpool.
IDENTIFYING FAKES (addressing the problem of forged Egyptian antiquities, recognizing the tell-tale signs of fakes versus typical/genuine Egyptian pieces) on Friday 6th May 2011 at Norwich Castle Museum, Norwich.
To register your interest in attending any of the workshops, please email Campbell Price, ACCES Project Assistant (firstname.lastname@example.org). Places will be limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Places are only available to ACCES members – joining ACCES is free, please let Campbell know if you would like to join. For further information on ACCES visit:
