Our guest speaker is author Dr. Peter Lacovara, Director of The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund. Nubia, whose very name means 'gold', was famous in ancient times for its supplies of precious metal, exotic material, and intricate craftsmanship. Although these unique treasures are among the most stunning to have survived from antiquity, they remain little known. In this talk, Lacovara will discuss objects featured in his new book Nubian Gold: Ancient Jewelry from the Sudan and Egypt co-authored with Yvonne Markowitz from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
