      ND!Quest for Eternity: Royal and Non-Royal Funerary Monuments of the Old Kingdom
      Speaker: Anika Nater (University of Toronto)
      Friday, May 2, 2008 | 7:00 pm
      Room 142, 5 Bancroft Ave, Toronto, Ontario, Canada


      This lecture is intended for a general audience and will compare and 
      contrast the two types of funerary monuments from the Old Kingdom with 
      specific references to the architecture, art, and texts found within 
      them. By examining these elements of the funerary monuments, some 
      insight can be gained into the importance of the tomb in ancient 
      Egyptian society. Religious and social issues highlighted by these 
      monuments will also be discussed to help provide answers as to what 
      the deceased hoped to achieve through these structures, how these 
      structures as a whole were meant to be understood, and whether or not 
      royal and non-royal funerary structures could serve precisely the same 
      purpose. Also discussed will be the economic function of these 
      structures and how they were necessary for ancient Egyptian society.
