“Women in the Shadows" explores the resilience and creativity of women writers, artists, and musicians in 19th-century Europe, highlighting their remarkable ability to overcome societal barriers and leave a lasting impact on culture and society. Despite facing numerous obstacles, these women defied expectations and carved out spaces for themselves in male-dominated fields, challenging norms and stereotypes along the way. Through their groundbreaking work and pioneering spirit, they not only asserted their presence but also contributed significantly to the artistic and intellectual landscape of their time.

History: The Egypt of Empire and Conquest - Ancient Egypt and Nubia

In a Study Day suitable for all we will consider how ancient Egypt treated a neighbour. Nubia is the area immediately to the south of ancient Egypt encompassing the south of Egypt today and much of modern Sudan. Nubia itself developed significant cultural entities especially the Kerma civilization and the later Napatan and Meroitic cultures. However much of the history of Nubia is inter-twined with ancient Egypt. The relationship between ancient Egypt and Nubia is a fascinating one and an ever-changing story. This day school explores the Nubian experience with Egypt from trade, through conquest, to the ‘Black Pharaohs’ of the Kushite period.
