This lecture will explore the non-royal cultic activities during the
Middle Kingdom at Abydos, one of the most sacred cities in ancient
Egypt, and how they are manifested archaeologically in the form of
highly specialized pottery vessels. A careful analysis of the ceramic
evidence reveals the site history, nature of private religion, as well
as the socio-economic organization of craft industry.

PhD). He has excavated in Egypt, including Abydos, and has taught for

Egyptian New Kingdom. It has long been thought that Lower Nubia was
devoid of population at the time, but recent excavations, especially at
the site of Qasr Ibrim, have proven otherwise.

Egypt Exploration Society excavations at Qasr Ibrim in Egyptian Nubia,
and has worked on many archaeological sites in Egypt and the Sudan. She
is a visiting fellow at the McDonald Institute of Archaeological
