Living to Work / Working to Live: Life in an Ancient Egyptian Elite Household

featuring Nicholas Picardo

Date: Monday, December 16, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Building: Dinwiddie Hall in Room 305
Location: uptown campus

Ever wonder how the other half lived in ancient times? While well-to-do ancient Egyptians lived in houses that must have seemed luxurious and palatial in comparison to what the average person could afford, they used household space for more than just eating, socializing, and sleeping. In ancient times, elite houses were also places to conduct business.


Join us as Nicholas Picardo (Harvard University) discusses his work in the ancient settlement of Wah-sut at Abydos, Egypt, focusing on details of everyday life and administration in this ancient version of a “company town,” circa 1800 BCE. This talk will present the archaeology of a household of the late Middle Kingdom—an era best described as an early example of “Big Government”—from the perspective of the generations who resided in “House E” of Wah-sut.
