A talk about ancient Egyptian coffins will be held by the Fenland Archaeological Society in Wisbech.
Helen Strudwick, who has worked at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge since 2001, studied archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean at Liverpool.
She went on to specialise in Egyptology.
In 2016, together with Julie Dawson, the museum's head of conservation, she curated a major exhibition on ancient Egyptian coffins.
The study of coffins has in the past concentrated on their decoration and owners.
