Lecture summary: This lecture compares mortuary culture and conceptions of the afterlife realm from Middle and New Kingdom Egypt and early imperial China. While there was no historical connection between the two civilizations, parallel developments between the two allow us to understand each culture better and to differentiate between shared structural traits and cultural particularities. It focuses on three areas: scribal culture as reflected in the tombs of scribes, tomb models and figurines, and ritual board games that give access to paradisaical realms.
