Petrie’s Set: A Walking Tour of Egyptological Bloomsbury


UCL Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT |

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free of charge but registration required
Ticketing: Open

Join Egyptologist John J Johnston as he takes you around the regular haunts of Professor Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and his fascinating academic circle during the ‘Golden Age’ of British Egyptology where you will be introduced to tales of the Egyptologists who lived and worked in Bloomsbury between 1882 and 1933, and their discoveries. The walking tour will last approximately two hours and, as Petrie, himself, might have said, ‘stout footwear and a sound constitution will be required.’
