Excavating Egypt in the 1930s
G6 Lecture Theatre |
UCL Institute of Archaeology
31–34 Gordon Square | London | WC1 | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Michael McCluskey, British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow, UCL English
The excavation team at Tell el-Amarna, Egypt shot over 3 hours of film footage from 1930-1933. These images of Egypt help us think about amateur film as a social practice and cultural artefact. They include a crucial moment in the excavation season rarely captured in motion: the division of antiquities.
See more footage from the Egypt Exploration Society's Lucy Gura Archive that has never been seen before in public... at least, not since the 1930s.
This event will launch a new collaborative project: Filming Antiquity. Filming Antiquity is funded by a UCL CHIRP Small Grants Award.
