Think it’s annoying when people use your stuff without asking?  Ancient Egyptians have been putting up with that kind of behavior for millennia, even after they were dead.  Egyptian tombs have often been used by many different people over hundreds of years, as well as looted during both ancient and modern times.  Placing new burials in old tombs has been called “usurping” by scholars, but is this really the right way to look at it?



Join us as Egyptologist Dr. Suzanne Onstine (University of Memphis) discusses the history of the tomb of Panehsy and Tarenut at Thebes.  She will explore all facets of the life of this ancient tomb, from its construction to how it has continued to play a variety of roles as a living monument over the millennia.  Even up until present day, Panehsy and Tarenut’s tomb continues to attract attention, even from people halfway around the world.



This event is free to the public.  It is recommended to arrive early, as seating is limited and on a first-come basis.
