Heads of Memphis: Talking Points
UCL Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology |
DMS Watson Building
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Sally-Ann Ashton, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge
Sally-Ann Ashton (Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge), considers the identity of the 'racial type' heads collected by Flinders Petrie in Memphis from 1910-11. What do these heads tell us about ancient Memphis and the Egyptians, Persians, Greeks and Romans who lived there? What do they tell us about Petrie's and Edwardian attitudes to race?
Doors open at 6pm.
