Roman and Hellenistic pottery from Egypt (copyright: Birgitta Hoffmann)
The arrival of the Alexander the Great and later the Romans transformed the cities of the Egyptian delta, binding them even more into the trade and culture of the Eastern Mediterranean, while at the same time remaining distinctly Egyptian in many aspects. The lecture will focus in particular on the harbour towns of the Delta from Alexandria in the West to Pelusium in the East.
This lecture presents an introduction to a planned trip to the British Museum exhibition. Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds in late October 2016 (details on application), but can also be attended on its own.
It also offers further details after Sarah Griffith’s introductory dayschool on the Ptolemies on Saturday, 18th June, 2016.
