critic a museum display featuring an ancient Egypt tomb

Paper details  

For this assignment, you will analyze and critic a museum display featuring an ancient Egypt tomb, responding to questions/prompts and incorporating specific key words. Submit 350-400 words. Grading will follow a rubric.

First, spend time on research, taking notes, and reflecting:

Go to the online collections of the Metropolitan Museum, New York. Explore the Mastaba Tomb of Perneb from 5th Dynasty, during the 3rd millennium BC [link (Links to an external site.)].
Read the label text.
Explore the images.
Listen to the audio file by the curators: Consider the role of Perneb’s tomb at the museum.
Read the Curatorial Interpretation by Curator Dorothea Arnold: Consider the meaning of the tomb during the time of Perneb.
Watch a Curatorial Video following the renovation of the tomb’s display in the Museum during the 1990s [link (Links to an external site.)]. Consider: Why and how was the display of the tomb altered in the 1990s? In what ways did the curators work to make the display feel more authentic?
Watch the reflection on the Tomb of Perneb by Artist Sarah Sze [link (Links to an external site.)]. Consider: What sort of inspiration may the tomb offer to the local people of New York or to international visitors these days? Do you have to completely understand the meaning of the tomb in ancient Egypt in order to respond to the tomb?
Please note that the research process takes time and thought, and it’s just as important as the final writing process.
Now, write your report:

Write a first draft addressing three components: First, briefly describe Perneb’s tomb and mention its history (in Egypt, and at the Met Museum); Then, briefly describe its possible role and meaning to Perneb, his relatives and his community, and what new meanings Perneb’s tomb assumed in its new context in New York. Finally, write your opinion: Is there anything positive about the relocation of Perneb’s tomb to a New-York based museum? Is there anything problematic about it? Explain your position. All three components of the text are important!
Make sure your text incorporates our weekly key terms: Archaeological Excavation, Provenance, Display, and Ownership. The meaning of the terms is discussed in tutorial. Make sure you employ the terms correctly and in the right context.
For this first assignment, there is no need to cite any sources or include a bibliography (but make sure to only use your own words and to paraphrase).
Edit you text to make sure it is focused and well-argued, amounting to 350-400 words.
Key words (consider our discussion of these terms over the tutorial):
Archaeological Excavation
Provenance
Display
Ownership
