TRC Director Dr Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood, author of various books on ancient Egyptian clothing, will discuss the largest group of objects found in the 1920s in the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh, Tutankhamun, namely the clothes and textiles. The lecture will focus on some of the most spectacular garments, namely the embroidered clothes, such as the imitation leopard skin to be worn by a priest and various decorated garments that have a clear non-Egyptian origin. Relevant replicas of the various garments will be shown.

Entrance: 5 euro. Language: Dutch. Number of available places is limited, so advance registration is required: info@trc-leiden.nl.
