Tomb Construction in New Kingdom Egypt

The Velux-sponsored project Tomb building in ancient Egypt, 1500-1000 BC: economy and infrastructure (dir. Fredrik Hagen) is organising a two-day workshop in connection with the preparation of an edited volume. Leading specialists have been invited to write chapters on a wide range of topics relating tomb construction in the Egyptian New Kingdom, from planning and design to construction and decoration. The authors will present preliminary overviews of their chapters, followed by short discussions of each individual contribution. 

Attendance is free and open to all. Registration is mandatory as space is limited. Anyone interested in attending should register via email to Sika Pedersen at ghp506@hum.ku.dk no later than September 14 2017.
