‘Before Egypt’ was an exhibition at the Victoria Gallery & Museum, the University of Liverpool (11 May - 26 October 2019), that featured collections of Predynastic Egyptian and Nubian artefacts from the University of Liverpool’s Garstang Museum of Archaeology, supplemented by loans of key objects from World Museum Liverpool, Manchester Museum, the Ashmolean Museum and the British Museum. With artefacts dating from as early as 7,000 years ago, Before Egypt delved into the prehistoric past of Egypt and Nubia, featuring the ways in which early art, culture and politics were influenced by the unique geography of the Nile Valley. Many of the artefacts highlighted in the exhibition had never previously been on public display. The exhibition culminated with the beginning of the Pharaonic Age in around 3000 BC, showcasing artefacts from the tomb of Neith-hotep, the earliest historically attested woman in the world. Displays featured an object in the Garstang collection which suggests that this remarkable woman may have been more than ‘just’ a Queen.
