A The Egypt Centre Event


Dr. Carolyn Graves-Brown

From: May 20, 2021, 3 p.m.
To: May 20, 2021, 4 p.m.
Location: Online Event - Please see description

Using items within the museum’s own collection as well as examples from elsewhere, we will discuss the importance of textiles in Ancient Egypt.

We shall briefly explore textiles used for the preparation of death including a rare painted shroud dating back over 3000 years, and consider theories as to how the ancients were able to pleat their garments.

We will also look at the "Coptic" textiles in the museum including some which are said to have been designed with the intent of tricking the evil eye.
