Friday – “Off the Beaten Track in Ancient Egypt: Inside Little-Known Pyramids and Tombs”
Instructor: Stephen “Dr. Steve” Phillips, Ph.D.,
Our September classes take us on a journey “off the beaten track” from the typical tour itineraries in Egypt. During his research and travels in Egypt over the past 25 years, Dr. Steve has been afforded numerous opportunities to visit ancient Egyptian sites that few tourists ever reach. We’ll explore the private tombs around the pyramids of Giza, the desert pyramid of Senwosret III at Lahun and its nearby tomb of a princess, and we’ll go inside the amazing Middle Kingdom tombs of Beni Hasan, in middle Egypt, whose wall paintings remain to this day some of the most vibrant examples of scenes of daily life.
