The Narma Palette and Meidum Geese from the Old Kingdom, the Senoswret III from the Middle Kingdom and the bust of Nefertiti and Nebamun paintings from the New Kingdom all indicate the wealth of Ancient Egyptian riches. They are a sample of the many discoveries that have been displayed and admired by millions of museum visitors around the world. This lecture will look in depth at these treasures, examining the techniques and materials used, who commissioned and owned them, their purpose and hidden meanings.
