Uncovering Ancient Egyptian Illumination

Free lecture, open to the public.

Summary: Very little is known about what the ancient Egyptians used for artificial lighting. The logistics of how these light sources were constructed, when they were used, and why they appear in certain ritual performances are even less understood. This presentation (re)examines archaeological, textual and iconographic material in order to provide new insight into these unanswered questions.
