The Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy has the second largest collection of Egyptian Antiquities in the world (after the museum in Cairo). In this lecture Dr. Christian Greco highlights connections between its artifacts, through the history of their discovery, the reunification of burial assemblages, and investigating the common characteristics of historical groupings. In his talk, Dr. Christian Greco, Director of the Museo Egizio, discusses how a collaboration of Egyptologists and scientists enables the recreation of archaeological and historical contexts of the stunning objects housed in the collection.
