The palaces of the 14th Century BC pharaohs Amenhotep III and Akhenaten have been excavated at Malkata in Western Thebes (Luxor) and Amarna in Middle Egypt, revealing extensive painted decoration, both on the floors and walls. In this course we will explore the archaeological excavations that have exposed such wonderful examples of ancient Egyptian art; the paintings themselves; and the modern housing and conservation of these fragments of fragile painted plaster. All-comers welcome.

The audience at wonderful Dillington House proved, once more, to be intelligent, informed and engaged with the subject. It is a delight to talk at a place where the thirst for culture and knowledge remains both broad and deep. Giles Tremlett (2013)
