African Combs

Saturday 28 April 1.30 – 4.30pm

An afternoon of activities around combs from all ages of ancient Egypt. Talks on the combs by Sally-Ann Ashton (Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge) will take place at 2pm and 4pm. A free trail is available to pick up for you to explore the museum with children or by yourself. We also want to hear comb related stories and histories from you! You can even bring along your comb and tell us about it!

Members of the ‘Origins of the Afro Comb Project’ committee will be available to tell you about the exhibition scheduled for 2013, afro hair and the range of combs available today.

You can opt to become part of history by telling us about your comb(s), or alternatives, as part of the filming for the forthcoming special exhibition Origins of the Afro comb. Please bring your combs to show and tell us about.

If you have any questions about the day please contact:
