Dr Joanne Backhouse

Dr Joanne Backhouse        

My lectures focus on the material culture of ancient Egypt, examining what the objects and archaeological remains can reveal about the people who made and utilised them. It is a game of detection and the clues are priceless.

January 2023
Jo's  online lectures are focusing on The Professions of Ancient Egypt.

Jo is also running a online session - Sun, 12 February  16:00 – 20:00 GMT
Through the prism: Colour in ancient Egypt
The use of colour was highly meaningful in ancient Egypt. Focusing on the four main colours we will learn to read the visual language.

For each online lecture series, a handbook will be provided with suggested readings. No prior knowledge is required, just an inquisitive mind. The Zoom link will be sent out the day before the lecture and again on the morning of the session, as a reminder

Her in person lectures at the University of Liverpool are on The Lives and Loves of the Ancient Egyptians: Hatshepsut

Jo will also be teaching at the Atkinson, in Southport in April

It tries to match interested students with highly qualified and experienced Continuing Education and University lecturers in the Arts and Sciences.
