About this event

"High-status burials in the Napatan Period: cultural interactions between Egypt and Nubia"

The burials of the Napatan royal families are notable for their adoption of Egyptian mortuary practices, iconography and texts. The appearance of closely comparable features in Egyptian burials at the same period raises important questions about the transmission of ideas. This lecture examines evidence from both regions and considers the Napatans' role both as instigators and recipients of change in the mechanics of providing for the dead.
