Bite Size Talk: Egyptian Funerary Objects

Tues 14 September, 1.30pm

Join Museums Worcestershire’s curators on the 2nd Tuesday of each month for a series of talks about the collections. Find out what sort of objects the deceased were buried with for use in the afterlife, with our World Cultures curator. Grave goods included pots, combs, stone vessels, figurines, jewellery and amulets.

Bite size talks are approximately 30 minutes long.

In-person talks cost £3 per person. Booking will become available soon.

An online version of this talk will be released a week after the in-person version. Accessing the talks online is free but donations are welcomed, and registration is compulsory. This will be a shorter, modified version of the in-person talk to reflect being conducted online.
