Talk by Ron Leprohon, University of Toronto

The Archaeological Institute of America Toronto Society and the UofT Archaeology Centre present an illustrated lecture:

A Wall for All Seasons: The funerary chapel of Pahery at El Kab

The Eighteenth Dynasty tomb chapel of Pahery, the Mayor of El Kab in southern Upper Egypt, contains scenes of the work done during all three seasons of the Egyptian calendar. A description of these and the symbolic direction in which they were meant to be viewed will be followed by an examination of the hieroglyphic captions accompanying the scenes and how these offered a different message to a literate audience.

Ron Leprohon, NMEC University of Toronto.

This event is free and open to all.Registration is not required.
