The Two Brothers: Kinship in Ancient Egypt

A series of presentations by Rosalie David, Roger Forshaw, Campbell Price, Joanne Robinson,  Liere Olabarria and Iwona Kozieradzka-Ogunmakin.

Date: 16 February 2019
Location: Roscoe Building (Lecture Theatre B), Oxford Road, The University of Manchester

The ‘Two Brothers’ tomb group has been an important part of the Egyptology display in the Manchester Museum for over a hundred years. It is one of the finest group of objects from a private burial of the Middle Kingdom and this year’s annual study day brings together experts to review this collection, examine the scientific investigations that have been carried out and the results of the latest DNA studies.

The discussion will widen to consider kinship in general in ancient Egypt.
