Delivered by: Jacqueline Hyman.
Bolton’s connection to Egypt dates back to the 1860s when local cotton manufacturers began trading with cotton merchants in Alexandria.
Annie Barlow, a mill owner’s daughter, collected local subscriptions for the benefit of Bolton Museum which today houses the most important and unique collection of Egyptian textile artefacts in the UK. These Egyptian textiles have been personally documented and conserved by lecturer Jacqueline Hyman.
This lecture will provide a detailed insight into the skill of the Egyptian textile weavers and embroiderers from the Pharaonic periods through to the 10th century AD.
