Dr Roberta Mazza, lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at The University of Manchester, will unravel everyday life in Egypt under the Roman empire, from the defeat of Mark Antony and Cleopatra to the Arab invasion.
Pharaonic Egyptian past is well known and popular among people across the world for the fascination of mummies, tomb treasures and the millennial history of the Egyptian civilization. However, Roberta will also discuss Egypt’s history after the Pharaohs; a story of cultural layering as the region became annexed successively to the Greeks, the Romans and the Arabs; presenting papyrus documents and archaeological objects from the Museum’s collections.
