Dr. Flora Brooke Anthony, “Foreigners as Symbols in Ancient Egyptian Tombs (1550-1372 BCE)”
About the lecture:
During the 18th dynasty (1550-1372 BCE), the height of Egyptian imperial expansion, images of foreigners bearing tribute became popular in the tombs of the Egyptian elite. This lecture will explore the significance of these images, arguing that they not only show the Egyptian state’s ability to impose order on foreign lands, but also symbolize the tomb owner’s ability to overcome the chaos of death and achieve a successful afterlife.
