Sessions at Towneley Hall give visitors a chance to handle and discuss items and artefacts from the time of the pharaohs
Ever wanted to find out more about life in ancient Egypt?
Have you wondered what mysterious stories lie behind some of the varied items and artefacts that are held in Burnley’s Towneley Hall?
On Saturday and Sunday afternoons over the next couple of weekends, you have a chance to get up close and personal with some of the most interesting items in the museum.
Archaeology graduate Tom Wright, who is now doing post-graduate studies at Durham University, will be sharing his knowledge and insights during sessions from 12 noon to 4 pm on the 17th and 18th September, and on the 24th and 25th September.
You can come along anytime during the afternoon just for a short while, or stay as long as you wish.
There’s no need to book. Just come along as normal to Towneley and ask about the sessions at reception.
