New Exhibition: ‘From Egypt’s Sands to Northern Hills’ in Rossendale

In an extension to its original run, the exhibition “From Egypt’s Sands to Northern Hills” is now at Rossendale Museum in Lancashire (18 August – 28 October) before moving on to the Museum of Lancashire, in Preston, from the 15th of November to the 20th of January. After that it will be at Lancaster City Museum from the 25th of January to mid-March.

The exhibition highlights the work of Blackburn-born Egyptologist John Garstang and, importantly, emphasises the unusually rich collections of Egyptian and Sudanese antiquities in the North West of England.

Less than 20 minutes away from Manchester. Admission free.

The Garstang Museum of Archaeology at the University of Liverpool
, the main lender to the exhibition, is (like Manchester!) currently closed for refurbishment but is due to open before the end of the year.

  1. I am a resident of Manchester and am very proud of the great work the museum keeps doing about ancient egypt. I remeber being captivated by it as a child and will be taking my own kids on the short journey to Rossendale to check this out.
