Third in a series of five lectures examining tomb design and decoration in ancient Egypt – focusing on the 19th Dynasty tombs of the nobles

About this Event

The primary function of the tomb in ancient Egypt was to protect the body of the deceased and ensure a supply of food and drink for eternity. Secondly, the painted decoration and grave goods guaranteed a successful afterlife by depicting correct rituals and festivals for the tomb owner. This course will examine the evolution of tomb design and decoration in collaboration with grave goods deposited in the tomb. The link between images and objects will be explored.

This ticket is for one lecture.

A handbook is provided for the course and articles and links sent out as appropriate.
