Akhenaten: Heretic, Visionary and Icon

Akhenaten: Heretic, Visionary and Icon

Date: 23 February – 30 June 2016 | Time: Museum Opening Times | Location: Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | Price: Free | Age group: Any

A display highlighting the magnificent objects in the Petrie Museum’s collection from Amarna that also explores the ambiguous and contentious figure of Akhenaten. Considered by some as ‘deviant’, by others as a hero, can we ever know who Akhenaten really was or can we only creatively imagine him in opera, art and fiction?

A themed trail to Amarna material on display in the museum collection is available.

Displayed in conjunction with Philip Glass’ Akhnaten at the English National Opera (4-18 March 2016).

Views of an Antique land:Imaging Egypt and Palestine in WW1

Date: 9th July | Time: 10am - 4pm | Location: The Petrie Museum | Price: Free event | Age group: ANY

Cardiff University will be at the Petrie Museum collecting images of Egypt and Palestine taken or bought during the First World War. If you think you have images from this period then please come along take the opportunity to bring their photographs etc. for the team to re-photograph or scan for uploading to the website – they are not looking to keep any original material, everything will be rendered virtually.
The team hope that lots of photographs, postcards, stereoviews, lantern-slides,or any kind of image relating to the period will be brought along to share. Once loaded to the website the copies will be available for all to see and so give a more comprehensive view of the First World War in Egypt than is presently available. The event also offers a cahe to look round the Museum outside normal opening times.am - 4pm

The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and hopes to involve as many people as possible as donors and volunteers.
