Shelters for Eternity

Studying Ancient Egyptian Coffins and Sarcophagi

featuring Dr. Aidan Dodson

Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Building: Dinwiddie Hall in Room 103
Location: uptown campus

During the nineteenth century, travelers and early archaeologists brought back vast quantities of antiquities from Egypt, but few were ever studied or published and most disappeared rapidly into museums and private collections.


Among these artifacts are many coffins – often exquisitely decorated, but until recent decades little studied. Dr. Aidan Dodson (University of Bristol, UK) has been working for some years on the publication of a number of coffin collections, including those in Edinburgh, Stockholm, and a number in various English regions outside of London. Join us as he takes us on an illustrated tour through what one can learn from Egyptian coffins and through their ancient and modern histories.
