Bolton's Egypt: The Making of a Museum, by Ian Trumble
In 1884 Bolton opened its first museum, ‘the Chadwick’, named after its principle benefactor. Although founded as a Natural History museum, it wasn’t long before it housed collections of Art, Social History, World Cultures and not least of all Egyptology. The collections grew, thanks to the enthusiasm of a local mill owner's daughter, Annie Barlow, who worked with the Egypt Exploration Society to bring Egypt to Bolton.
From mummies to jewellery, and statues to temple columns, the collection spans several thousand years of history. Over 130 years later, Bolton has one of the largest and best collections of Ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK, that are now newly displayed in Bolton’s Egypt.
Ian Trumble studied BA Archaeology at The University of Manchester and MA Landscape Archaeology at The University of Sheffield He has worked for Bolton Museum for over 10 years in various capacities, but for the past 3 years he has been curator of the archaeology, Egyptology and world cultures collections, and most recently curated the new Bolton’s Egypt permanent gallery refurbishments. Ian is currently Chair of Council for British Archaeology (North West Region), Chair of Bolton Archaeology and Egyptology Society, Leader of Greater Manchester Young Archaeologists Club, and Local Ambassador for Bolton for the Egypt Exploration Society.
