Professor Joann Fletcher: Discovering Ancient Egypt in Roman Yorkshire – Wed 1 Jun 2016

Date: Wednesday 1 June 2016, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Venue: Yorkshire Museum

With links between ancient Egypt and Yorkshire dating back to Roman times, Professor Joann Fletcher examines the way in which Egypt’s ancient culture spread through the county as far as York, affecting not only its political and religious life but its funerary practices. Presenting the findings of recent research, Jo will reveal surprising aspects of the lives of those who lived in Roman Yorkshire almost two thousand years ago.

This event is part of the Eboracum Roman Festival.

£11 – tickets available online here, in person from the York Visitor Information Centre, Museum Street, York YO1 7DT, or by phone: 01904 550099 (NB: For tickets sent by post there will be an additional postage charge).
