Join the CPS for their annual away day; this time hosted at the mysterious, magical and mummified Petrie Museum!

The Petrie Museum houses one of the greatest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. It promises to host an evening you will never forget, housing around 80,000 objects. Whether you prefer to take in the fashion of the Taekhan or bead net dresses, or be awed by Akhenaten and the rays of the sun god Aten, you won't be disappointed. You'll go potty for pottery when you see the beautiful objects from Meroë or the creepy skeletons inside the pot burials!

A half an hour talk will be followed by a wine reception, giving you a chance to have a closer look at the artefacts!
