Workshop

Ever wanted to know how to date an Egyptian statue? What makes an Amenhotep III face recognizable? How can you tell if a piece was recarved? What about the dating of Egyptian non-royal objects? This workshop will teach some of the tricks of the trade – using the shape of an eye, or a drooping lotus, or a distinctive belly button – as well as introducing the standards of portraiture. Come and learn to date Egyptian artifacts like a pro.

PIZZA WILL BE SERVED!

Danielle Candelora is an Egyptology graduate student here at UCLA.
