I hope you’re all doing well and enjoyed the beautiful weather we’ve been blessed with recently.
Today is one of my favourite days of the year as I can celebrate my Welsh heritage… I usually do this by indulging in lots of ‘Welsh Cakes’ and ‘Bara Brith’! I hope you have a wonderful day today, whatever you are doing.

From the Nile Valley to Camden
A History of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian and Sudanese Archaeology, UCL
Tuesday 23rd March 2021 at 6pm
The Petrie Museum, based in Malet Place and part of University College London, is home to over 80,000 objects from Egypt and Sudan, and many of these objects were excavated by Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and his Egyptian workforces from sites across Egypt.
This talk will explore some of the lesser-known stories relating to the collection, particularly focusing on how and why the collection came to be in Camden, and some of the characters who contributed to the foundation and care of the Petrie Museum over the past century. The speaker, Dr. Anna Garnett, is the Curator of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian and Sudanese Archaeology and has previously worked at several local, national and university museums in the UK. She earned her PhD from the University of Liverpool and has worked as a Field Ceramicist in Egypt and Sudan for over 10 years.
The talk lasts forty-five minutes and will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
