Lecture: Ramesses II and the 19th Dynasty
Date: 7:30 – 9:00 pm, 04-Apr-2014
The 19th Dynasty in ancient Egypt was a period of great strength. During the foundation of this dynasty, Egypt would extend its influence to its greatest extent into the Levant. With large reserves of wealth, large architectural projects would be constructed that come to rival the pyramids in their size and splendor. Through this lecture, we will discuss the general political developments and take a close look at the artistic works that characterize the period.

‘What’s in a name? Demonic names in the Book of Two Ways’ lecture by Zuzanna Bennett
The Demonology Project’s Zuzanna Bennett will be giving a lecture as part of the Friends of the Egypt Centre lecture series.
The ancient Egyptians came into contact with a wide range of supernatural beings in daily life and in the afterlife, some of which are described in the texts and images decorating the coffins of the Middle Kingdom. This lecture will examine the demonic beings encountered in a section of the Coffin Textsknown as the Book of Two Ways, focusing on their varied and often terrifying names, which range from ‘He whose face and tongue are dreadful’ to ‘Aggressive one’.

"The Discovery of Pharaoh Senebkay: Shedding Light on a Lost Egyptian Kingdom"
Monday, March 31at 6:00-7:00
Dr. Josef Wegner will discuss his recent excavation of the tomb of previously-unknown ancient Egyptian pharaoh, Woseribre Senebkay at South Abydos. This discovery by Wegner and his team from the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Philadelphia) in cooperation with Egypt’s Ministry of State for Antiquities provides the first material confirmation of a forgotten “Abydos Dynasty” (ca. 1650–1600 BCE).
