CIPEG 2014

In late August, I attended the annual conference of CIPEG (Comité international pour l’égyptologie), one of the many committees of ICOM (International Council of Museums).  The meeting is mostly attended by curators who have charge of Egyptian and Nubian collections in museums around the world.  It was a very well attended event: I met old friends and made new ones…

Attendees of the CIPEG meeting, at least those who were there on the first day.

The meeting was held in Copenhagen (my first visit!) at the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters and we had extremely interesting papers on the theme of ‘sources and resources’.  I did not present at this meeting, but I hope to do so next year.

My colleague Tine Bagh, curator of Egyptian art at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, and her team did a fabulous job of organising this lovely conference and scheduling activities that allowed us to discover Copenhagen and Denmark. Cheers!
