The unique exhibition aims to explore the impact of Nubia on the art, culture and politics of Egypt's past, as well the tomb of Egypt's first queen.

Predynastic Egypt Exhibition

Victoria Gallery and Museum, an art gallery managed by the University of Liverpool in the UK, is set to host a unique new exhibition this month that showcases never-seen-before pieces from Egypt dating back almost 7,000 years, according to the university’s website.

Running from May 11th to October 31st, ‘Before Egypt’ explore Egypt’s prehistoric past, with a partial focus on Nubia with a view to examining the relevance of Nubia's geographic location in impacting the area's early art, culture and politics.

The exhibition includes pieces from other museums around the UK as well as pieces from the tomb of Ancient Egyptian queen, Neith-Hotep, who is believed to be the first known female monarch.  

“When people think of Egypt, they tend to think of pyramids and gold masks, mummies and animal headed gods,” exhibition curator, Dr.Gina Criscenzo Laycock said. “But where did the people who created these wonders come from? And who was Neith-hotep, the first woman in the world whose name survives to this day? Was she a queen, or was she Egypt’s first Pharaoh? This exhibition is an exciting opportunity to talk about how we interpret ancient evidence, and invites visitors to examine their own preconceptions and preferences.”
