Clothes for a Pear-shaped King!

Our speaker next Monday (10th April) is Rosalind Janssen, Lecturer in Education at UCL Institute of Education and previously curator at the Petrie Museum. She will be presenting our annual Bob Partridge Egyptology Lecture with a look at the clothing of Tutankhamun.

Tutankhamun was a decidedly peculiar shape if his surviving garments are anything to go by. Why did he have such vast amounts of underwear in his tomb, and what did he wear on his feet? We look at these and other questions in relation to his surviving clothing, linking his world to that of other children in Ancient Egypt.

Please join us! 7pm for 7:45pm start. All welcome.
