Blogging about Egypt at the Manchester Museum

Karen Exell, Curator of Egypt and the Sudan at the Manchester Museum has started a blog about the redevelopment of the Egyptology gallery at the museum (to open in 2011). The blog is titled titled Egypt at the Manchester Museum. Karen will be reflecting on the process of consultation and redevelopment of the galleries and using the blog to generate discussion and feedback. As the blog points out:

This blog is about everything Egyptian (and Sudanese) at the Manchester Museum, from events, behind the scenes curatorial work, gallery redevelopment, Museum policies that affect the Egyptian and Sudanese material, to schools teaching and research links with the University.

It promises to be an exciting ‘behind the scenes’ diary and notebook of the thinking, consulting, evaluating, designing and developing of the new galleries, which will be worth following and actually contributing! Looking forward to it!
