HYBRID - The Mummies of Aswan: The Missing Link (Free Hybrid Lecture)

November 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Geological Lecture Hall
24 Oxford Street
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States

In recent years more than four hundred ancient tombs, dating from the 6th century BCE to the 3rd century CE, have been discovered on the West Bank at Aswan, Egypt, near the Aga Khan mausoleum. A multidisciplinary team, including the Egyptian-Italian Mission, has found more than a hundred individuals along with their funerary equipment. Piacentini will share the first results of this archaeological research, highlighting the multicultural environment of the necropolis and possible diverse geographical origins of the people buried there.

Free and open to the public. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage. Presented by the Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East and the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.
