Speaker information

Professor Stephen Quirke, Curator of the Petrie Museum

Professor Stephen Quirke, curator of the Petrie Museum, talks about his recent research on the Egyptians who worked with Flinders Petrie on archaeological excavations from the 1880s to the 1920s. He will look at how integral they were to Petrie’s work in Egypt and how the workers themselves have been lost from the landscape of the history of archaeology. Doors open at 6pm.
