About Me

Overseeing work at the temple early in day. Dangeil 2009.

Yours truly overseeing work at the temple early in the day (Dangeil 2009).

Really. I am a real archaeologist. I even have the hat. (The hat is pretty much the only thing a real archaeologist has in common with Indiana Jones.) Mine, I have to admit, is pretty awesome. I love my Tilley. Not only am I an archaeologist, I’m also an Egyptologist and a Nubiologist.

Oh! I’m also a museum curator.  I take care of the collections of Egyptian, Classical, Pre-Columbian, Oceanic and Near Eastern art at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh. I guess I wear many hats!

Sold Out!

Next Friday, I’m giving a lunch and lecture at the Museum on the topic that has many times graced my blog: the science related to the research on the classical collection.  What a fun learning experience that has been! The project is not completed by any means–it will culminate in the publication of said research in the collection catalogue–but we’re wrapping up the actual study of the artefacts.

A few days ago, I was told that the event was sold out!  Now I just need to get cracking on that PowerPoint!  I dump loads of very cool photos in it, I just have to organise them into a coherent narrative. No worries, it will get done by Thursday evening!
