Lectures & Events 2014
(Lecture times 2pm - 4.30pm)
28th June - Worthing
Lucia Gahlin - 'The Beautiful Moment' - Ancient Egyptian creation mythology
Lucia is an Honorary Research Associate at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology and an occasional lecturer for the University of Bristol. She teaches Egyptology for the University of Exeter and lectures widely throughout the UK and abroad. She works regularly in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, and has been Registrar for Barry Kemp’s archaeological expedition at Tell el-Amarna. She is Chair of the Friends of the Petrie Museum, Deputy Director of Bloomsbury Summer School, and leads tours to Egypt.
Lucia’s talk explores the several explanations which survive from Ancient Egypt as to how the universe came into being. They are associated with different important cult centres, but share common ground. We will compare and contrast these carefully constructed metaphors, hoping to find a window into the ancient Egyptian mind.
