Pharaoh’s Chancellor: The Tomb of Senneferi at Thebes

featuring Dr. Nigel Strudwick

Date: Friday, April 5, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM
Building: Dinwiddie Hall in Room 102
Location: uptown campus

Ever wonder who helped the Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs run Egypt? Administrators like Senneferi did, and they were richly rewarded for it by the king. Most notable among these rewards are the beautiful tombs meant to help them reach the afterlife.  Originally from the Nile Delta in the north, Senneferi was brought to Thebes in the south by Pharaoh Thutmose III to be in charge of the local administration and finances.  He would stay in Thebes the rest of his life and be buried there. Join us as Egyptologist Dr. Nigel Strudwick (University of Memphis) discusses his work in Senneferi's tomb on the West Bank of Thebes.  Up until Dr. Strudwick started working there in 1992, as field director of the Cambridge Theban Tombs Project, Senneferi's tomb had been rather neglected by archaeologists.  In discussing this work, the lecture will look at Senneferi himself, his family, and what his tomb tells us about the history of tomb use and reuse in Thebes. This event is free to the public.  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.
