Archaeologists study stylistic and technological changes in excavated materials—especially pottery—to better understand developments in ancient Egyptian society. However, little attention has focused on using the archaeological record to understand the transfer of cultural knowledge. How did people learn the arts and crafts of potters, basket makers, metalworkers, and scribes? Willeke Wendrich will explore the social history of learning in ancient Egypt and what it can teach us about the present.


Free Public Lecture

Willeke Wendrich, Joan Silsbee Chair of African Cultural Archaeology; Professor of Egyptian Archaeology and Digital Humanities, University of California, Los Angeles

Presented by the Harvard Semitic Museum. Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
