Presented by Dr Campbell Price

Statues were central to ancient Egyptian religion, but how did the Egyptians use and understand them? This day school will examine stylistic developments in sculptures of non-royal people, deities and kings, and address the meanings behind them through textual sources. We will also study the existence of portraiture, the role of sculptors and the rituals designed to bring statues to life. The collections of The Garstang Museum of Archaeology provide a valuable resource for this course.
