John Billman: ‘Hatshepsut : The eternal female pharaoh of Egypt – her monuments explored’

Daughter of one Pharaoh, widow of another, Hatshepsut is best known for becoming Egypt’s first successful female ruler. This talk explores her monuments, from the Deir el-Bahri temple, considering both famous and lesser-known scenes and examples of archaism, to Karnak where she erected obelisks and constructed the Red Chapel, as well as evidence from Nubia which helps us to challenge the traditional narrative for this queen.

Doors open at 1.30 pm. The lectures will be split into two sessions with FREE refreshments served in the break. Lectures commence promptly at 2pm and meetings conclude around 4.30pm
