Exhibition: Ancient Egyptian textiles and modern art (
"Ancient Egypt will come alive this week in a new exhibition at Bolton Museum.
From a Modern Land. Ancient Egyptian textiles: Contemporary Paintings will include ancient artefacts alongside contemporary art inspired by them.
Bolton's valuable collection of archaeological textiles, the fruit of British excavations in Egypt, is one of the most significant in Europe.
But because they are so delicate the items are rarely displayed. The exhibition will give people the chance to the items alongside paintings by artist Ros Ford.
It will also highlight the links between ancient and modern Egypt, as well as changes that have taken place over the ages."
See the above page for more details.

There doesn't appear to be any mention of the exhibition on the Bolton Museum website, but the Museum's Egyptology pages can be found at:
