The mystery of the “White Walls”: The new discoveries at Memphis. Dr. Galina Belova

October 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW/NYU)
15 East 84th Street (between 5th and Madison Avenues)
New York,, NY 06438 United States


The Russian Academy of Sciences recently established in Egypt an institution for studying the ancient history of Egypt – the Institute of Egyptology of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Institute was allowed to select a monument among those not yet investigated. The Institute selected the site of the Palace Apries on Kom Tuman.

During the first visit to the monument it became clear that its roots go deep into Egyptian history. From the height of the remaining part of the palace there is a commanding view of the pyramids in Saqqara and Giza, and visually opposite them was the pyramid of pharaoh Djoser and burials of the first Egyptian Kings. Just to the South, at the foot of the palace was the temple of the State god of Egypt – Ptah, whose cult had existed from the time of the foundation of the capital – “White Walls”. Numerous ceramics fragments from the time of the Old Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period discovered on the surface convinced the team that this was the right choice for excavation.

The lecture will present in detail the fascinating discoveries made by Dr. Belova and her team.
