Talk: Cracking the Egyptian Code at the Oxford Literary Festival

Friday, 5 April – 12:00pm

Robinson has written the first biography in English of Champollion and charts a dramatic life as a teenage professor, supporter of Napoleon, exile, fanatic decipherer and curator of the Louvre. He shows how Champollion lived life to the full and drove himself into an early grave.

Robinson is a former literary editor of the Times Higher Education Supplement.
