Heka – the role of magic in Ancient Egypt

Heka (magic) was a divine force imbued in deities, the king and the dead.  It could be used for good or bad, private or state purposes.  This course will examine the objects and images created to channel the power of heka, including figurines, amulets, magic wands and spell books.

Although much, if not all, of Egyptian art was magical this course will examine images and objects created specifically for magical practice. This includes rituals in the home, temples and in the funeral realm. These workshops will centre upon the concept of the assimilation of magic, medicine and religion in ancient Egypt and examine how magical practice was part of everyday life.

£35 for all 3 classes. Workshop dates are  24 October, 31 October, 7 November

Includes refreshments
