Message from Ine Jacobs (Oxford LABS London Day, 6 February)

Dear all,

LABS is planning a day in London on Saturday 6 February 2016. In the morning, we will be attending the Sinai workshop at Bridgewater House (For the full programme and more information, seehttp://www.medievalart.org/icmacommunitynews/2016/1/10/the-world-comes-to-sinai-saint-catherines-monastery-as-a-cultural-magnet); in the afternoon we will be visiting the BM exhibition Egypt. Faith after the Pharoahs (http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/faith_after_the_pharaohs.aspx).

We will meet at Bridgewater House, London, at 9.45 am. The start time of the visit to the BM will depend on availability. If you interested in joining us for the morning and/or afternoon, send an e-mail to Ine Jacobs (Ine.Jacob@classics.ox.ac.ukasap, before Tuesday 26 January, as we need to let the organisers of the Sinai workshop know our number and book tickets for the exhibition well in advance.

Best wishes,
