Description

This tour will take you around the British Museum looking at the ancient Egypitan artefacts that are held there. Over many years the museum has "acquired" many artefacts from ancient and modern Africa.

This tour will be led by the eminent historian and author of "When We Ruled", Robin Walker [aka The Black History Man] who has led many tours around the museum.

You will hear about how the ancient Egyptians lived, how they worshipped, what they worshipped, and how they saw themselves in the world.

The tour will be conducted in a professional manner around the museum by the man who knows a lot about Egypt as he has studied the subject for many years. He is a leading authority on Egypt and can answer your questions knowledgeably throughout the tour.

Come and hear about:

  • The African Obas
