A chance to look in depth into the methods employed by the ancient Egyptians to create their unique personal style. Geoffrey Tassie (Institute of Archaeology, UCL) explains the technical elements involved in the dressing and wearing of hair and wigs, alongside the application of body decoration featuring tattooing, skin piercing and make-up. Rosalind Janssen (Birkbeck) examines linen and clothing technology with her special interest in the Egyptian laundry and pleating techniques. Janet Johnstone (independent costume consultant) looks at the use of linen cloth for clothing and describes how simple linen shapes were styled and worn by men and women. Carol Andrews (Birkbeck) and Sally MacAleely (UCL) further investigate the connection between jewellery and the use of fresh flowers for decorating the body. To end the day, Patricia Spencer (EES) will discuss Egyptian dancing and there will be a demonstration.
