The Sacred Landscape of Ancient Egypt

The ancient Egyptians saw the natural world around them as being filled with divine presence, from the daily crossing of the sky by the sun god, to the annual rise and fall of the river Nile, to a local god who might live in a nearby mountain. They were also extremely skilled creators of buildings which had a variety of ‘sacred’ purposes (including tombs and temples) some of which were built on a spectacular scale.

The Sacred Landscapes of Ancient Egypt explores the links between the landscape and the objects and buildings that are associated with it.

Opening Times for Exhibitions are:

Monday – Saturday 10am – 4pm

Sunday 11am – 3pm

 The exhibition is a joint venture between The Atkinson and Dr. Steven Snape, Reader in Egyptian Archaeology at Liverpool University.
