In the Time of the Pharaohs: Egypt and the Levant in the New  Kingdom

Forthcoming Saturday Series

NEAF is delighted to present its next Saturday Series, ‘In the time of the Pharaohs: Egypt and the Levant during the New Kingdom’, which will explore Egypt and its connections with the Levant during the New Kingdom. With the exciting upcoming Australian Museum exhibition, ‘Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs’, coming to Sydney in November, this lecture series will explore the life and times of Egypt in the New Kingdom, with special reference to pharaoh Rameses II. From politics to health and to culture, this series will study the lives of Egyptians during the New Kingdom and the extensive contacts with the Levant that brought about riches, long distance trading networks, and, ultimately, war.

These online lectures will be delivered via Zoom and will start at 10am and last for approximately two hours. The two-hour block will be divided into two 45-minute lecture-sessions by different speakers. The first lecture will start after a short introduction at 10am and there will be an opportunity to ask a few questions after this lecture. The second lecture will begin at 11.05am and finish at 12 noon.

There will be a ten-minute coffee-break between the two sessions.

The Seminars will be held online on Zoom
