Celebrating the return from loan of thirty-two objects spanning three thousand years of Ancient Egyptian history, this exhibition draws on the body of research arising from their long-term loan to the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum and University of Birmingham.
Ancient Beings was installed in the Tower Gallery at Eton College from November 2019 to April 2020. Despite its popularity, we were forced to close exhibition significantly earlier than planned due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This online exhibition has allowed us to permanently share this stunning collection with a wider audience and has meant that bonus material and the associated activities can also be accessed from home.
