Ashmolean: New Egyptian Gallery
From 26 November 2011
Recommend this exhibition
The Ashmolean is home to some of the finest ancient Egyptian and Nubian collections in the country, with Predynastic and Protodynastic material which ranks amongst the most significant in the world.
As part of the final stage of the Ashmolean’s transformation, the Egyptian Galleries will be redisplayed to include the British Museum’s sandstone sculpture of Nerfertiti, reuniting this figure with the statue of her husband from House I.50.20 at Tell el-Amarna.
