Event Details

The purpose of this confernece is to explore the fertile imaginary world of Middle Bronze Age Egypt through its material culture and the archaeological sources from which such material is recovered. One principal focus will be on figurines in their immediate and wider archaeological context. We also aim to explore other objects that have traditionally been interpeted as tools for the protection of mother and child, all as products of an interwoven world. 

The conference is an opportunity to explore how the ancient Egyptians populated their imaginary universe, combining different images, materials, and objects- "Company of Images".

Key points of discussion will be the following:

  • Iconography
  • Find assemblage 
  • Materiality and technology
  • Types of context
  • Rituality and conception
The aim of the conference is also to consider related material from other periods that throw light on the subject.
