As part of an event at the National Museum of Scotland’s flagship exhibition, The Tomb, organised by the Society of Antiquaries, lecturer in archaeology Dr Joanne Rowland was on hand to talk with visitors about her excavation projects in Egypt.

Around 150 people attended the event and Dr Rowland was kept busy answering questions on her work at the cemetery of Quesna, and the prehistoric site of Merimde Beni Salama, which provides the oldest evidence of a settlement community in the Delta.

‘I was really pleased to have a constant stream of people coming to look at the poster and pictures about the sites, and to ask questions – including a student who will be joining the MA Archaeology course at the University of Edinburgh in September!’ said Dr Rowland.
