Ramesses the Great – Pharaoh of the Exodus?

Michael Tunnicliffe & Sarah Griffiths

Please note: due to the adverse weather and the Northern Trains Strike, this course will now take place on SATURDAY 24th MARCH, 2018. There are still places available for booking.

Ramesses II was one of the greatest and most powerful of the pharaohs. During his 67 year reign he built more temples, erected more colossal statues and sired more children than any other Egyptian king. His inscriptions tell us about his great victories over the enemies of Egypt: the Hittites, the Nubians and the Libyans. He expanded Egypt’s empire, secured the borders and established the first major peace treaty in history. He was revered by later kings, and became the ‘Ozymandias’ of classical legend.

But was Ramesses the pharaoh of the Exodus? Did he enslave the Israelites and suffer the ten plagues of the Bible? Can we believe the king’s propaganda – does Ramesses “the Great” truly live up to his name?

Join Michael Tunnicliffe and Sarah Griffiths as they investigate, using evidence from Biblical and Egyptian sources to explore the life and legacy of Ramesses II.
