Pendlebury at Amarna: film screening and discussion
G6 Lecture Theatre |
Institute of Archaeoogy
31-34 Gordon Square | London | WC1H 0PY | United Kingdom
John Pendlebury was appointed director of the Egypt Exploration Society's excavations at Tell el-Amarna, Egypt, for the 1930-31 season. The 'film record' of excavations at Tell el-Amarna was made over the course of three seasons from 1930 to 1933.
Pendlebury embraced the idea of filming his dig in order to raise awareness of the importance of the work. In recording moving images at Amarna Pendlebury and his team could claim to be closer to the cutting edge.
The Lucy Gura Archive at the Egypt Exploration Society now holds the footage from these excavations, capturing the life and work of this fascinating man and his team at a pivotal moment in the history of the site.
