Richard Jaeschke's lecture takes a tour through time and place, from 3500 B.C. to Roman times and spanning more than 6,000 miles.
Richard Jaeschke has been conserving ancient Egyptian artefacts in museum collections and on-site for more than 40 years, from the wall-paintings of Medinet Habu and the mudbrick “fort” at Hierakonpolis to carved hippo ivories and a famous person’s walking stick.
As well as working on magnificent statues and stone reliefs, he has also treated everyday personal possessions and even the bodies of the ancient Egyptians themselves, most notably the mummies in the museums at Bolton, Truro, Plymouth and Swansea.
Ticket sales will go towards raising conservation funds for Ta-Kr-Hb.
