Image of the Week #2

This week we have a view taken in June 2010 of the interior of the rock-cut tomb of Ankhtify at el-Mo'alla, where a team from the University of Liverpool is currently working. Ankhtify was Governor of the ancient Upper Egyptian town of Hefat in the 9th Dynasty. 

From Egypt's Sands to Northern Hills - Thank You Blackburn!

The second leg of the 'From Egypt's Sands to Northern Hills' touring exhibition on John Garstang's excavations in Egypt has just closed at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, and the objects are due to be unveiled on their third leg at Towneley Hall, Burnley on March 24th, where they will remain until June 28th.

The exhibition has been very well received on the first and second legs at Kendal and Blackburn respectively, and we look forward to seeing the exhibition in its stunning new venue at Burnley. Any feedback from visitors to the exhibition so far would be gladly received.

Image of the Week #1

I've decided that I have far too many photos and drawings sitting unused on my computer, and so I'd like to start sharing them in the form of 'Image of the Week'.

This will include photos and drawings of ancient Egyptian sites, museum visits and the landscape of Cumbria and North Yorkshire. 

The first is this photo of bound captives at the Temple of Sobek at Kom Ombo, taken in June 2010. 

Yan Tan Tethera: A rhyme derived from a Brythonic Celtic language used by shepherds to keep sheep in many parts of England and Southern Scotland.

Until the Industrial Revolution, the use of traditional number systems was common among shepherds, especially in the Dales of the Lake District.
