Bolton School Senior Girls

Old Girl to give Nefertiti Lecture at School

Bolton School will host a free, public talk from Egyptologist Dr Joyce Tyldesley on Thursday 4 October 2018 at 7pm. Dr Tyldesley, an Old Girl of the School, will base her lecture on her latest book, Nefertiti’s Face: The Creation of an Icon

This promises to be particularly relevant for anyone studying historical subjects at GCSE and A Level but should also appeal to anyone with a keen interest in Geography, Archaeology or visiting ancient sites.

Born and brought up in Bolton, Dr Tyldesley remains true to her roots: she is President of the Bolton Archaeological and Egyptology Society and has an honorary doctorate from Bolton University. She attended Bolton School before studying Archaeology at Liverpool University and went on to earn her Doctorate in Prehistoric Archaeology from Oxford, working on hand axes produced by Neanderthal man. She currently teaches at Manchester University and has written several books.

Dr Tyldesley’s books will be available to buy on the evening of her lecture.

This free event is open to everyone and will take place in the Girls’ Division Great Hall on Thursday 4 October 2018, beginning at 7.00pm. Refreshments will be available beforehand from 6.30pm. Parking will be available in the Girls’ Division Quad, which will be clearly signposted on the night.
