Recreating the sounds of Roman Egypt through experimental archaeology

Dr Ellen Swift
What did musical instruments sound like in Roman Egypt, how were they used, and who listened to them? As part of a wider Arts and Humanities Research Council project on artefacts from Roman and Late Antique Egypt, our project team attempted to address these questions through the recreation of replica objects using new 3-D scanning and printing technology. Some replica instruments will also be available to try out.

No booking necessary, all welcome. Donations are requested of £3 per lecture on the door for non-members of FCAT, £2 for FCAT members. No fee for students.
