The First Pharaohs

On Wednesday November 10, 2021
Professor Aidan Dodson, Hon. Professor of Egyptology, University of Bristol.

Lecture will begin at 7.30 p.m.

Egypt was unified around 3000 BC, beginning the history of Pharaonic Egypt and setting the

ground-rules for the nature and constitution of the state and kingship that would endure for

three millennia. This talk will explore the history and archaeology of the first three Egyptian

dynasties, from the unification itself down to the building of the first three pyramids.
