Egyptian Archaeology: An Introduction - AHIS170

This unit explores the development of ancient Egyptian civilisation from the Predynastic period to the end of the New Kingdom as reflected in the archaeological record. Settlements, temples, burials and associated material culture are analysed to understand the daily life and religious beliefs of the ancient Egyptians over 2500 years of Pharaonic history. The unit also draws on the experience of extensive fieldwork by Macquarie University staff in Egypt. Students gain a solid understanding of the geography, chronology and archaeology of ancient Egypt as a basis for further specialised study in the discipline.
