This month's post is over on the Architectural Association Collections blog. I had a wonderful trip there to see archives relating to Egypt Exploration Society architects Ralph Lavers and Hilary Waddington. Both were students at the Architectural Association Schools in the 1920s and thanks to archivist Ed Bottoms I explored a hidden history of architectural dramatics in which both Lavers and Waddington took part.
Lavers organised the 1933 exhibition of objects from the Society's Amarna excavations at the Architectural Association. In a detail of the EES catalogue front cover that Ed used to lead the piece, Lavers name is just visible between the kneeling figure's right leg and foot. You can read "Pantos of the Past" here.
