John Wyatt: The Fauna Of Ancient Egypt - Recent Advances

DNA sampling, new archaeological finds and revised identifications during the last twelve years have challenged our understanding of the birds and animals of Ancient Egypt and of how they were then interpreted in art, daily life and religion. This talk examines some of the more interesting discoveries.

John Wyatt is an expert in African Wildlife and has been researching the fauna of Ancient Egypt for the last 20 years. The results have led him to reassess the key animals that were actually present and to reconsider the importance and use of the 250 or so bird species identified to date.

The Manchester Ancient Egypt Society welcomes everyone with an interest in ancient Egyptian history. The oldest and largest Egyptology society in the UK, we organise an annual programme of lectures from visiting Egyptology professionals, as well as conferences, study days and regular trips to Egyptology collections in the UK and further afield. You can find out more about our activities on our website, meet some of our members, download the latest lecture programme and get details about how to join us. www.maesweb.org.uk
