Mon 8th May: Peter Robinson – The Ancient Egyptians Map their World

Our next meeting is on Monday 8th May!

(Please note due to a calendar error this has been advertised previously as 15th May).

Peter Robinson joins us to look at how the ancient Egyptians were able to map their world and, in some cases, the Afterlife they expected to go to after death, and what this shows us about how the ancient Egyptians thought about the worlds of the living and the dead.

Peter is the Treasurer of Poynton Egypt Group, and is a trustee of the Canada-based Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities. He runs the Friends of Nekhen website for the supporters of the Hierakonpolis expedition in Egypt and as an Editorial Assistant to Ancient Egypt Magazine, he produces maps for each edition.
