About Suzette Hartwell

After viewing a picture of the gold mask of Tutankhamun at age seven, Suzette Hartwell knew immediately she would spend the rest of her life learning about this extraordinary culture.

Her studies of Egyptology have also led to an involvement in archaeology and as a result she has participated in three archaeological digs over the past few years: one was successful in finding evidence of early European settlement in central Victoria; another found evidence of early Chinese ceramic kiln works also in central Victoria; and an underground dwelling in Tell Maresha, Israel.

Suzette's passion and knowledge has led to work in the Egyptian museum, Cairo, doing data entry work under the auspices of Dr Zahi Hawass and Dr Janice Kamrin.

She studied Egyptology at undergraduate level at Manchester University, England and is currently undertaking a Masters degree in Egyptology at Macquarie University, Sydney. With a lifelong passion in all things Egyptian her aim is to complete a PhD and hopefully contribute to our understanding of the gods, wall scenes and/or varying clothing styles of ancient Egyptians. Suzette’s current research is with the Egyptian goddesses Hathor and Isis.
