Video Friday: Highlights of Saqqara at the National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden




Dr. Maarten Raven is a passionate egyptologist and one of the best specialists of the excavations in Saqqara. We had the pleasure to film and edit the lecture he gave in Brussels in 2014 during the ArtConnoisseurs/BAAF/AAB lecture series. Now, we are glad to share with you a private tour with him among one of the most important Egyptian art collection in Europe.

Dr. Raven shares with us the story of the sculptures of Maya and Merit, an important couple at the time of Thoutankamon and a pure jewel of the museum's collection.
