Psychical Research and Archaeology

December 18, 2011

HARN member, Amara Thornton (Institute of Archaeology, UCL) explores the connections between sites and seances in early twentieth century archaeology. Concentrating on the archaeologists George Horsfield and Agnes Conway but with reference to Petrie’s assistant and lecturer at UCL Margaret Murray, Dr Thornton considers how the use of mediums and psychical research was a larger phenomenon in archaeology than has generally been admitted.

Talk at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, 19 January, 6.30-7.30pm. See http://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums/whats-on/petrie_listings for more information
