The Art and Architecture of Ancient Egypt (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

The cyclical ebb and flood of the Nile River created the conditions for a complex system of agriculture in the ancient north African world. This in turn connected to a pantheon of gods, and religious practices that divided the poor from the wealthy and powerful while also connecting the living with the dead. This course will look at how ancient Egyptian and Sudanese society communicated complex ideas via art and architecture, from the development of hieroglyphic writing 5000 years ago, to massive sculptural programmes, rich burial traditions, and the lasting impact of their way of ordering and recording the world.
