The Faces of Nefertiti

Lucia Nixon considers multiple views of the bust of Nefertiti (now in the Egyptian Museum in Berlin). She explores some of the chronologies of desire that underlie those views, in Egypt and elsewhere, and what they say about people’s ideas of the past and the present.

Lucia is a classical archaeologist at the University of Oxford, where she is a Senior Tutor at St Hilda's College and co-directs the Sphakia Survey, an interdisciplinary archaeological project investigating the sequence of human activity in Sphakia. As well as archaeology in general, Lucia writes about other sacred and economic landscapes; archaeology and gender; and equality issues "
