Dr. Kevin M. Cahail, Curatorial assistant, Egyptian Section, Penn Museum; Lecturer, History Dept., Penn State Abington campus

The tombs of the New Kingdom Temple cemetery consisted of modest, vaulted mud-brick substructures, with small pyramids once standing above them.  Yet, recent Penn Museum excavations at the site have shown that these humble tombs once contained a staggering number of individuals, some of whom can be placed into the historical fabric of New Kingdom history.

Burials include all ages, making this site one of potentially great importance to our understanding of non-royal life during the late Eighteenth and early Nineteenth Dynasties.  In this lecture, Dr, Cahail will discuss the cemetery, its tombs and inhabitants, and explore how recent findings in the field fit with the history of Abydos and Egypt as a whole. 

?Entrance fees are $10 for the general public, $7 for Penn Museum members and UPenn Staff & Faculty, $5 for Students with ID, and FREE for ARCE-PA members and children under 12.

Dr. David P. Silverman, Eckley Brinton Coxe, Jr. Professor of Egyptology, Dept. of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, UPenn; Curator of the Egyptian Section, UPenn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Egyptian pharaohs went to great lengths to prepare their final resting places, and these architectural monuments could take various shapes, such as mastabas, pyramids, and rock cut graves.  In addition to containing the ruler’s mummified body, these tombs also became a storehouse for all the necessities the kings required for their journey to what lay beyond.  They also represented a microcosm of the environment in which royalty would spend eternity. This lecture will focus on what we know and don’t know about the necessities that the pharaohs would require in order to reach this goal and maintain their existence in this new and eternal cosmos.

Entrance fees are $10 for the general public, $7 for Penn Museum members and UPenn Staff & Faculty, $5 for Students with ID, and FREE for ARCE-PA members and children under 12.
