Digging the Past: Archaeology on TV

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

UCL's Petrie Museum of Egyptology aims to explore Egyptian archaeology from a different perspective in this alternative film event. By clubbing together with the British Film Institute and the Institute of Archaeology, the museum has sourced a selection of footage that shows TV's take on the serious study of ancient remains. Across three, one-hour session (screened back-to-back but ticketed separately), the films feature clips from 1950s panel show 'Animal Vegetable Mineral', British archaeologist Mortimer Wheeler, John Romer of 'Romer's Egypt' and fictional footage from programmes including 'Dr Who'.
