Starting today, we will be sharing the reports written by ITP 2019 fellows about their experiences on the summer programme. As we will have quite a number of reports to get through, we will be releasing these reports by the British Museum department each fellow worked in. First up is Egypt and Sudan!

The Department of Egypt and Sudan hosted four ITP fellows for this year’s summer programme. Departmental time included a trip to Kew Gardens, where fellows were given a behind-the-scenes tour of the Economic Botany archives.
