A renowned expert from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem will once again visit the Abbey Museum. A great friend of our little museum, Prof. Wayne Horowitz visited last year and spoke about the museum’s unique collection of Cuneiform tablets. This visit was so popular, that it resulted in an inevitable second visit and we are delighted to welcome him back on September 19th at 7.00pm. (Wine and cheese reception from 6.30pm).
This year his talk will again revolve around the ancient astronomical tablet from Babylon which forms part of the priceless collections of the Abbey Museum and will offer visitors valuable opportunities to address questions concerning the early history of astronomy, geography and the entanglements with divination and religion.
The evening will include a talk by Peter Zilberg, also of the Hebrew University, entitled ‘Ezekiel and the Grand Canal of Babylon’.
