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.
