Violaine Chauvet: ‘The Ptahshepses-corpus: inspiration in the decoration of an Old Kingdom family cluster’
Inscribed and decorated material from a cluster of Old Kingdom tombs at Saqqara, has found its way into several collections in the UK; Aberdeen, Liverpool and the BM. While uncertainty remains over the relationships between the individuals buried in this cluster, the shared characteristics of texts and tomb scenes suggest they belonged to a kin-group who engaged a single workshop to execute the tomb decoration.
Doors open at 1.30 pm. The lectures will be split into two sessions with FREE refreshments served in the break. Lectures commence promptly at 2pm and meetings conclude around 4.30pm
