Ancient Egyptian Literature: The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant (Thursday 6PM-8PM)

Description

This course will enable participants to study a famous piece of Middle Kingdom Egyptian Literature, ‘The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant’. This classic tale is about a clever peasant who was robbed, spoke eloquent protests against his treatment, and got his goods back as a result. We will be studying extracts from the text itself using a transcription of the original hieroglyphs. As we read the text participants will develop skills in identifying several common grammatical forms and learn how to transliterate and translate a narrative text. This will enable us to understand how the Ancient Egyptians used different techniques to express themselves through their literature.

Wondrous Kush: Introduction to Nubian History and Archaeology (Thursday 6PM - 8PM)

Description

Known to the Egyptians as ‘Wretched Kush’, Nubia has often been side-lined for its more famous neighbour. This course presents an introduction to Nubian history (c.3000BCE to c.400CE) from the Nubian perspective, showing how Nubia left as much of an impact along the Nile Valley as Egypt, something that is now only starting to be fully understood and appreciated. This course will give students the opportunity to get closer to one of the great kingdoms of Africa.

Women in the Roman World (Wednesday 2PM - 4PM) - Non-Accredited

Description

This course provides an overview of the lives of women in the Roman Empire, a societal group whose voices are often under-represented in the study of the ancient world, by reconstructing their lives and experiences through the historical and archaeological record. We will consider and contrast the lives of different female groups in the Empire, from wealthy women to poorer, and from women in Rome and Italy to their counterparts in the provinces, drawing the evidence together to gain insight into what life was like as a woman in the Roman world.
