  • Overview

    This unit explores the development of ancient Egyptian civilisation from the prehistoric period to the end of the New Kingdom as reflected in the archaeological record. Settlements, temples, tombs and associated material culture are analysed to understand the daily life and religious beliefs of the ancient Egyptians over 2500 years of Pharaonic history. The unit also draws on the experience of extensive fieldwork by Macquarie University staff in Egypt. Students gain a solid understanding of the geography, chronology and archaeology of ancient Egypt as a basis for further specialized study in the discipline.
