Ancient Egypt Across Scotland
Date: Thursday 22 August 2019 7.30pm
Dr. Dan Potter from the National Museums Scotland will speak on the Egyptian collections held in Scottish museums. Ancient Egyptian objects can be found in museums across Scotland; from the Borders to Orkney and everywhere in between.
These amazing objects hold both the stories of the Egyptians who made and used them, as well as the Scottish travellers, archaeologists, scientists and artists who collected them.
