A talk with Helen Strudwick, Associate Curator, Egyptian Antiquities.

Recent studies of Egyptian coffins have revealed the reuse of materials, and even whole coffins themselves, especially at the end of the New Kingdom and the beginning of the Third Intermediate Period. Research at the Fitzwilliam Museum suggests that this practice is more widespread than originally thought. Examples of reuse from the Museum's Egyptian coffins collection, and the possible reasons underlying this practice, will be discussed in this talk.

Admission is by token, one per person, available at the Courtyard Entrance desk on a first-come first-served basis from 12.45 on the day of the talk. Assisted hearing sets are available.
