Friends of Abbey Museum

This presentation will take place on February 24th 2018, the first of the series in the Friends of Abbey Museum for 2018. The purpose of the event is to share information about this museum’s amazing collection, in particular the items that are NOT on display. With more than 5,000 items in the collection, only 800 are on display. So our Collections Registrar has picked a few of her favourite things and is sharing the stories of these items in the collection, in line with the Abbey Museum vision of ‘enriching lives through stories created from our collection'. We know you'll enjoy it!

Rediscovering the Lost Empire of the ancient Hittites

This presentation on April 21st 2018, presented by The University of Queensland's Hittitologist Prof. Trevor Bryce, will investigate how, through archaeological evidence and language dicipherment, historians are beginning to understand this lost civilisation.  The ancient Hittites Empire once spanned from Turkey's western coast to the Euphrates river and south through Syria onto the Damscus borders.  However, we have known little about this civilisation until the last 140 years.  The purpose of the event is to engage with Friends' members and visitors through an educative presentation.  The presentation begins at 2.00pm and is followed with questions and afternoon tea, concluding around 4.00pm.
