Ancient Egypt and the Modern World by Tom Hardwick

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Egyptologist Tom Harwick will consider over two thousand years of Western engagement with Egypt-from the Roman Empire to the present day.

What have different cultures seen in and taken from Pharaonic Egypt?
How and why has ancient Egypt's influence remained so pervasive?

These questions get to the bottom of the reasons behind the creation of the Hall of Ancient Egypt at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Tom Hardwick studied Egyptology at the University of Oxford, and has worked in museums in Europe, the United States and Egypt. He has a particular interest in Egyptian sculpture, and has also carried out research into the history of Egyptology-the collecting, study and forgery of Egyptian works of art. He is consulting curator of Egyptology for the new HMNS Hall of Ancient Egypt.

    We all hope Jen is feeling better and can make it tonight. The important thing that many of you have missed on previous lectures at the museum, is that you can park in the museum garage. I've seen anybody there to take money when these lectures finish making it no-charge parking. The gate opens and lets you out. I'll be parking there when I come back from the Black Lab. See you tonight ... I like to sit on the 5th row for these IMAX lectures.

    Cheers, John

    I enjoyed the talk, but could have been a bit livelier.

    The information was great with a few good stories and details. The speaker was articulate but spoke too slow to keep my attention or to be even slightly entertaining.

      He could have used some of your Toast Master's training ;)

    Looks like a good group coming for the lecture ... join us at the Black Lab just prior to the talk if you can make it down there earlier. RSVP really not important for the dinner before ... join the group and take care of your own check. We'll probably get a table for 10. Cheers, John
