The Museum Collections Centre are giving the public the chance to find out more about ancient Egypt and have access to real artefacts at its study day on 3 August 2012. Egyptian expert Phil Watson will be on hand to take "enthusiastic amateurs" through the day's events. The cost is £25 per person and will include evidence analysis and artefact handling sessions. There will also be a visit to the Egyptian collections on site. Lunch and refreshments are included. Speaking as someone who has had the pleasure of visiting the MCC, it is a great venue and there are some beautiful artefacts on site! Click here for further details of how to attend.
