30th September Rameses the Great Day School

Saturday, 30th September at 11am. Bexhill museum will be holding a day school in the education room on Ancient Egypt - Rameses the Great, led by Ken Brooks.


In this session we will look at the life of Rameses II, perhaps one of the greatest pharaohs of ancient Egypt. During his long reign he did everything on a grand scale, whether it was building impressive temples, erecting colossal statues or producing many children! Rameses never missed an opportunity for self-glorification as a warrior pharaoh. He was a master in the use of propaganda - particularly when claiming a doubtful victory over the Hittite army. Despite Rameses' military campaigns, his reign was generally a time of peace and prosperity for Egypt.
Other topics will include Rameses' family background, the beautiful tomb of his favorite wife Nerfertari, and the huge temple carved from rock at Abu Simbel in Nubia.

There will be time to examine the museum's own display of Egyptian artifacts.
Fee: 15 per person for the day (12.50 for museum members). BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. Forms and further details are available from the museum in Egerton Road.
