This mini-seminar delves into the question of what it meant to be a foreigner in Ancient Egypt. Following a general background discussion of the topic by Dr. JJ Shirley, Dr. Kate Liszka and Dr. Beth Ann Judas will present their work on two distinct types of foreigners, the Medjay and the Keftiu respectively.  
 
These particular groups of foreigners each played an important role in ancient Egyptian society and held special status within the Egyptian world-view. The day will also include a tour of the Egyptian Gallery at the Penn Museum that focuses on images of foreigners and what they do – or do not – tell us about the place of a foreigner in ancient Egyptian society.
 
Speakers:
 
Dr. JJ Shirley: University of Pennsylvania/Journal of Egyptian History (Brill); Visiting Researcher/Managing Editor
 
"What it Meant to be a Foreigner in Ancient Egypt"

At the start of the 20th century Theodore Davis was the most famous name in archaeology in the world; his career turned tomb-robbing and treasure-hunting into a science.  A quintessentially American rags-to-riches tale, the story is of the dizzying rise of a poor country preacher’s son who through corruption and fraud won tremendous wealth in Gilded Age New York and then atoned for his ruthless career by inventing new standards for systematic excavation and discovering a record 18 tombs in the Valley.  Read more »
