Dr Flora Anthony, Egyptologist

Flora says ‘I am finishing my doctorate at Emory University this May. My field is Egyptology and my dissertation is on paintings of foreigners in ancient Egyptian tombs. I hope to turn this research into a book that will reach a wider audience. I also conduct workshops on ancient Egypt. In one of them we make faience, the first man made material. I wrote the educational materials for the recent traveling King Tut exhibition and have worked on the Animal Mummies Project at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.’
