Description

Saturdays, 25 February, 11 March, 25 March & 1 April

10:15am – 4:00pm

£95 for all four sessions

In the late 15th century BC Egypt possessed its greatest empire extending from north Syrian in the north to southern Nubia in the south. Its trading contacts linked to the Mycenaean civilisation, Syria and tribal Africa. At the centre of this economic powerhouse resided the magnificent Pharaoh Amenhotep III who used his wealth and power to commission some of the greatest cultural achievements in ancient Egypt’s 3,000 years of history.

Over four Saturdays we will explore the world of Amenhotep III, who may be arguably described as Egypt’s greatest pharaoh, and look at his great building projects; the remarkable artistic and religious developments of his reign and the individuals of the royal family and court who helped to create the richest and most cultured society Egypt had ever seen.

Suitable for: 18+

The course is aimed at beginners with an interest in ancient Egypt.
