Poynton lecture 21/09/12: ‘Hidden Treasures of Ancient Egypt’ by Dylan Bickerstaffe

Poynton Egypt Group kick off their 2012-13 programme of lectures with a talk by Dylan Bickerstaff. This from Dylan’s website:

We have all experienced the frustration as a guide drags us round the same ‘highlights’ of a well-known monument, delivering the same potted history, and leaving us with a strange feeling of dissatisfaction. But when we visit on our own and have time to absorb the atmosphere and mooch about (for the umpteenth time?), we often fail to track down things we wanted to see, or find anything new. In this talk I shall venture to a few more out-of-the-way places, in middle Egypt, for instance, but will also explore such familiar sites as Karnak, Luxor Temple, and Medinet Habu, always in the hope that I can reveal some of the untold stories hidden close at hand, and provide some new points of interest. Join me as I go rooting about.

7.30pm, Friday 21st September

Lower Park Primary School, Hazelbadge Road, Poynton, Cheshire. Contact: 01625 612641.
