The 21st century has seen incredible advances in our knowledge and use of forensic sciences -  to investigate crimes and find out about people from ancient times. 

How can we apply this information to the people of ancient Egypt? Ever wondered how archaeologists work out the age at death of a mummy or skeleton?  How do they know if the body is male or female?  What diseases did people have? How can we identify the men and women from ancient times?

Join us on this fascinating study day to learn the secrets of: examining ancient remains, facial reconstruction and scientific techniques and test your skills in a hands-on practical session.  Joyce has undertaken
cemetery excavations (in Egypt, Sudan and Britain), CT scanning projects and forensic examinations.  She is the only British Egyptologist to have officially examined the body from KV 55, thought to be
Tutankhamun's brother.  She has made many tv appearances and written widely on ancient Egypt. She is a world acknowledged expert on mummies.

Cost: £30 (to include afternoon refreshments)

Please note: as places are limited bookings must be received no later than 17 October 2009

  • history of Egyptology
  • education

Contributions are invited from anyone who is involved in research associated with Egyptology, from any background or training.

In addition to papers, contributions in the form of posters are encouraged as a means of presenting a synopsis of the results of research, proposals for potential collaboration and work in progress.
