Where The Heck is it? January, 2017

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Without doubt the finest statue in existence of the famous warrior pharaoh, Siptah-Hotep, commissioned shortly after his great battle with the Libyans, who fought with elephants and trained warthogs. Discovered in 1835 by an archaeological team from Liechtenstein, it was sold to the Welsh village of East Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, where it remains today, visited by a stream of admiring Egyptologists!

Just out of curiosity…do you know…

  1. What pharaoh is represented by this statue?

  1. Where do you think it sits?

Bring your answers to the January meeting and if you have the right information, you might win prizes!
