Sidney Barnett's Exploration of Egypt

In November 1862 Sidney Barnett wrote a lecture on his time in Egypt collecting artefacts for the Niagara Falls Museum. His handwritten notes for this lecture are now a part of our collection. Using Sidney's own words, local performer David MacKenzie brings to life a lecture older than our country. Immerse yourself in the ancient treasures of Egypt through the lens of a mid-19th century traveler.
