A study day presented by the KNH Centre in association with the Manchester Museum. Speakers to include Roger Forshaw, Campbell Price, Nicky Nielson, Iwona Kozieradzka-Ogunmakin and April Pudsey.

The day comprises a series of presentations whose topics include: Healing remedies for children in ancient Egypt; Children’s portraits and playthings in Graeco-Roman Egypt and Royal Father-Son Relationships in the Early Ramesside Period.

Children were at the centre of the ancient Egyptian worldview, but they are often over-looked as a group in Pharaonic society. This study day brings together experts to discuss different aspects of childhood in Egypt: from kings to commoners, health, religion and afterlife expectations. Following on from sold-out previous study days on ‘Women’, ‘Men’ and ‘Gods’ in Ancient Egypt, proceeds from this event will go to support the Museum’s new Courtyard extension project.
