Museums across the UK and around the world are currently closed due to the global coronavirus pandemic; however, much work on Egyptological collections in the UK is still being done. Join Egyptological curators from around the UK as they share their personal favourite items in their collections in the Egypt Exploration Society's first ever Virtual Study Day on Saturday 13 June.
