This was my first talk on Egyptology by Lucia Gahlin and my first lecture at Dillington House – and I was very pleased with both.
Lucia spoke on the representation of celebration and festivities in the art of ancient Egypt.
We looked at the art and design of jewellery, painting, statuary, tombs and gods.
It was utterly fascinating – I learned so much about the symbolism of the art across the centuries of the empire.
Dillington House is a great venue and I felt I had had a most enjoyable and informative day – one I shall certainly repeat when Lucia is lecturing there again
