Archaeology of Early Egypt - AHIS370

The cultures of Pre- and Early Dynastic Egypt represent the foundations of Ancient Egyptian civilisation. This unit examines and discusses the social organisation, material culture, art and earliest historical evidence starting with early prehistory (c. 500,000 BCE) until the end of Dynasty 2 (c. 2750 BCE). Particular attention is given to the processes involved in the formation of the early Egyptian state.
