Dr Bill Manley

'Some boat trips in Ancient Egypt, real or imagined?'

Bill Manley is Honorary President of Egyptology Scotland and teaches Egyptology and Coptic at the University of Glasgow. He is also Co-Director (with Dr José-Ramón Pérez-Accino) of Egiptología Complutense, Madrid, and an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool. He was formerly Senior Curator for Ancient Egypt at National Museums Scotland, and continues to work with archaeological projects in Egypt. Bill’s publications include How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs (1998, with Mark Collier), Egyptian Hieroglyphs for Complete Beginners (2012) and Egyptian Art (2017).

Dr Campbell Price

‘Campbell’s Tomb’ and the 26th Dynasty at Giza

Named in honour of the Scottish-born Consul General in Egypt, Patrick Campbell (1779-1857) [rather than the speaker], 'Campbell's Tomb' at Giza is but one of many Saite Period structures, additions and renovations that attest to interest in the site during the First Millennium BCE. This lecture reviews some of that evidence, its colonial interpretation, and a recent find in Derby Museum to paint a picture of priestly activity and research on the Giza Plateau by the ancient Egyptians themselves.

Campbell Price is Curator of Egypt and Sudan at Manchester Museum, one of the UK’s largest collections of antiquities from the Nile Valley. He studied Egyptology at the University of Liverpool, where he is an Honorary Research Fellow. Campbell is Vice-Chair of Trustees at the Egypt Exploration Society. His most recent book, Golden Mummies of Egypt. Interpreting Identities from the Graeco-Roman Period is out now.
