John Wyatt and Hilary Wilson: 'Small Creatures - The Less Familiar Wildlife of Ancient Egypt.'
This day will be delivered over four sessions, each devoted to a group of the lesser-known wild animals portrayed in Egyptian art and artefacts. John’s zoological identification of the various species will be combined with Hilary’s analysis of the cultural or religious significance of these animals within Egyptian society.
1: Tooth and Claw – The Smaller Cats and Dogs
2: Matters of Identification – Art v Zoology
3: Living on the Edge – Dwellers of the Desert Fringes
4: Sink or Swim – Tortoises and Turtles
There will also be an Introduction and Q&A sessions: timings to be published later along with cost.
