This Sunday afternoon lecture will be given by dr. Tineke Rooijakkers of Amsterdam Free University, who specialises in Middle Eastern clothing of the Greek/Roman and post-Classical period.

Tineke Rooijakkers will be talking about female fashion in Late Antique Egypt, and how the use of hairstyles (huge wigs and hair extensions) and flashy jewellery became an important element in a fashionable woman's wardrobe in the early centuries of the first millennium AD. The talk will be based on finds from archaeological excavations and the study of paintings.

Date: 16th September 2018. Time: 14.00 - 15.30. Venue: TRC, Hogewoerd 164, 2311 HW Leiden. Entrance: 5 euro. Language: Dutch.
