About this event
Artisans, particularly those engaged in producing sculpture, held an especially important place in Ancient Egyptian society. This lecture explores the ‘magic’ of artistic production and traces the evidence of some artisans, who often left their mark on works they created or used their access to skills and resources to make very special objects for themselves.
Campbell Price is Curator of Egypt and Sudan at Manchester Museum, one of the UK’s largest Egyptology collections. He undertook his BA, MA, and PhD in Egyptology at the University of Liverpool, where he is now an Honorary Research Fellow. He has published widely on ancient Egyptian material culture, most recently Pocket Museum: Ancient Egypt (Thames and Hudson, 2018). Campbell has lectured widely throughout the UK, and internationally.
