Lecture: The End of the 19th Dynasty and the 20th Dynasty
Date: 7:30 – 9:00 pm, 03-Oct-2014
Continuing our series on an overview of Egyptian history, the Calgary SSEA is proud to present a talk on the end of the 19th Dynasty and the 20th Dynasty. With the passing of Ramesses II, Egypt appears to experienced some turmoil. The royal succession was contested in the Theban area with Sety II in the North and Amenmesse in the South. Exactly how this conflict played out is hotly debated in Egyptology. What is clear is that the 19th Dynasty ended with a new Dynasty in control. Far from being a stable era, the 20th Dynasty kings had to contend with a fluctuating Nile, economic pressures and the threat of the Sea Peoples and Libyans attempting to make their way into Egypt.

The National Geographic film that will include footage of our season will be broadcast on PBS stations here in the United States beginning on October 1. Check local listings for "Black Pharaohs". DVDs will be available through National Geographic after that, and I assume the program will also be available for streaming, but that remains to be seen.
