Egyptian Archaeology: An Introduction - AHIS170

This unit explores the development of ancient Egyptian culture from the Predynastic period to the end of Late Antiquity (ca. 5000 BCE to 1000 CE) as reflected in the archaeological record. The themes studied will deal with both funerary and settlement archaeology and isolate key developments in burials, dwellings, religious buildings and objects of daily use. The unit will draw on the experience of extensive fieldwork by Macquarie University staff in Egypt. Students will gain a solid understanding of the geography, chronology and archaeology of the ancient Egyptian culture as well as an understanding of the key problems and controversial areas of interpretation as a basis for further specialised study in the discipline.
