A Glimpse of Ancient Egypt at WA Museum

Wednesday 19 May 2021 | 1pm - 1.30pm


WA Museum Boola Bardip focuses on Western Australia, but did you know there are ancient Egyptian objects in the Innovations and Stan Perron WA Treasures galleries?

Dr Moya Smith will share the stories and locations of these objects.

Dr Moya Smith | Head of Anthropology and Archaeology

Moya’s research has included working as an archaeologist with Aboriginal communities in the South West and Kimberley, but she also has an ongoing interest in the archaeology of countries around the Mediterranean rim.

Despite digging in the UK and Jordan, Moya has never made it to Egypt, but working at the Western Australian Museum has presented opportunities to engage with visiting international Egyptologists, travelling exhibitions of Egyptian treasures and to unravel the stories of the Museum’s small collection of Egyptian artefacts.

Location: Learning Studios
