Lee Young (Griffith Institute, University of Oxford) will give a seminar organised by the Institute's History of Archaeology Research Network on 7 May.

The seminar is entitled 'Annie Pirie Quibell and Rosalind Paget: Two intrepid Victorian women who went out to Egypt at the turn of the 20th century with Flinders Petrie' and all are welcome.


Lee Young will discuss how Miss Paget and Miss Pirie came to Egypt in the first place, and show how it was to live and work in Egypt through their paintings, the photographs of the period and the larger than life characters they met.

The seminar will be followed by a reception supported by the Institute's Heritage Studies Section.

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Amara Thornton.
