The people who lived in ancient Egypt were as absorbed in personal adornment as the fashionistas of today. A remarkable archaeological record of their clothing, cosmetics and, above all, their fabulous jewelry allows us to recreate their high fashion"looks" over some three millennia. Roberta Shaw will discuss all the accoutrements that went into producing their idea of perfect personal beauty.
