Lecture: “Ancient Egypt and Modern Science: How Geophysics has Revealed More of Saqqara’s Secrets”

On Friday the 27th of January I will be giving a lecture as part of the Daresbury Laboratory Talking Science series. Please note the change of topic: I will be speaking about how the work of the Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project has shed light on one of ancient Egypt’s most important religious and burial sites, Saqqara. The lecture will be between 7 and 8pm.

    Hi Campbell

    Maybe the photo of you ‘ironing the desert’ is really the one I should use on the EgScot website to display the amazing work of the Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project! Good luck with the lecture.
