Experiment and Experience - Ancient Egypt In The Present

University of Wales Swansea

Thanks to Charles Ellwood Jones and the Ancient World Online blog for pointing me to the above link.

This conference included an exciting array of demonstrations and talks, from flint knapping to flower arranging, from textiles to ship building, not to mention woodworking, stoneworking, manufacturing ritual clay artefacts, shipbuilding, antler bow manufacture, glassworking, an oral performance, and of course mummification!

This conference was streamed with financial help from Swansea University Research Institute for Arts and Humanities. The videos can be downloaded by clicking on the name of the speakers.
