History of Archaeology: Stories from the Archives and Beyond

November 7, 2017, 6:00pm - November 7, 2017, 7:30pm

Would you like to dive into the many stories found within the archives? Would you like to see the most popular publications of archaeological experience in the past? Amara Thornton, Honorary Research Associate at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, presents a lecture entitled: "History of Archaeology: Stories from the Archives and Beyond". She discusses the role archaeology had in the context of imperial tourism and highlights how archaeologists and artists fed into the fascination raised by this discipline. With the occasion she finds connections with the current exhibition "Missione Egitto 1903 - 1920". **** USEFUL INFORMATION **** Tuesday, November 7, 2017 Time 6 pm Sala Conferenze – Museo Egizio Introduction by: Paolo Del Vesco, curator of Museo Egizio and of the exhibition "Missione Egitto 1903 -1920" FREE ENTRANCE /////////////////////////////////////// La conferenza, a cura di Amara Thornton, ricercatrice onoraria associata all’Istituto di Archeologia dell’UCL, vuole far avvicinare il pubblico alla varietà di notizie portate alla luce dalla ricerca archivistica e dalle pubblicazioni più famose che raccontano le esperienze archeologiche del passato. L'archeologia ebbe un ruolo fondamentale nel contesto del turismo imperiale e, nel tempo, artisti e archeologi, si sono dedicati allo sviluppo della disciplina e delle sue pratiche, rendendola anche più conosciuta al grande pubblico. Tutto questo è stato possibile grazie agli uomini e alle donne celebri, ma spesso anche dimenticati, che hanno preso parte alle grandi avventure archeologiche, come ci ricorda anche la mostra "Missione Egitto 1903 - 1920". **** INFORMAZIONI **** Martedì 7 novembre ore 18:00 Museo Egizio - Sala Conferenze Introduce: Paolo Del Vesco curatore del Museo e della mostra "Missione Egitto 1903 - 1920" INGRESSO LIBERO FINO A ESAURIMENTO POSTI CONFERENZA IN LINGUA INGLESE
