‘Nefertiti – Ancient Egypt’s Most Intriguing Queen’ – Lucia Gahlin

Once again, I have lucky to attend another of Lucia’s talks – this one on the beautiful, 18th Dynasty, Queen Nefertiti.

Nefertiti_berlinLucia brought a new slant and new information to the subject of this enigmatic queen.
The talk covered much: the history behind Queen Nefertiti and her husband Akhenaten; the disruption and politics of their reign, and their decline and downfall.
But in addition, Lucia covered the story of how the wonderful, iconic bust of Nefertiti came to be in Berlin and not in Egypt as might be expected – it was so interesting and informative.

Another great talk in the lovely setting of Dillington House.

Thanks again Lucia
