Lecture: Death on the Nile - THIS IS NOT A TULANE UNIVERSITY PROGRAM OR EVENT.

The Lifecycle of a Theban Tomb

featuring Dr. Suzanne Onstine

Date: Monday, October 15, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Building: Dinwiddie Hall in Room 102
Location: downtown campus

Think it’s annoying when people use your stuff without asking?  Ancient Egyptians have been putting up with that kind of behavior for millennia, even after they were dead.  Egyptian tombs have often been used by many different people over hundreds of years, as well as looted during both ancient and modern times.  Placing new burials in old tombs has been called “usurping” by scholars, but is this really the right way to look at it? Join us as Egyptologist Dr. Suzanne Onstine (University of Memphis) discusses the history of the tomb of Panehsy and Tarenut at Thebes.  She will explore all facets of the life of this ancient tomb, from its construction to how it has continued to play a variety of roles as a living monument over the millennia.  Even up until present day, Panehsy and Tarenut’s tomb continues to attract attention, even from people halfway around the world. This event is free to the public.  It is recommended to arrive early, as seating is limited and on a first-come basis. Sponsored by the American Research Center in Egypt, New Orleans Interest Group and the Department of Anthropology, Tulane University.
