Artefacts of Excavation Project Exhibition
Petrie Museum private view for Artefacts of Excavation project exhibition
Thursday 26 January 2017, 6-8pm
Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, Malet Place, UCL Culture, University College London, London, WC1E 6BT
The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology is delighted to invite you to the Private View of our new exhibition, Exporting Egypt: where, why, whose?
From the 1880s to the 1990s, licensed British excavations in Egypt resulted in
the discovery of tens of thousands of artefacts. These can now be found in
more than 350 institutions, in 27 countries across 5 continents.
There is no other endeavour in world archaeology that has a legacy of such a scale or scope. This exhibition explores the journeys taken by objects from archaeological sites to institutions around the world, the issues involved and their legacies today.
The exhibition will run from 31 January – 29 April, Tues – Sat, 1-5pm in the Petrie Museum.
