      Description: "This talk pools together textual, pictorial and archaeological evidence to examine numerous aspects of private (or domestic) production and distribution in ancient Egypt. Some issues raised will include the kinds of products that were made in ancient Egyptian households, how raw materials were procured, who made these goods, and how was this domestic production organized. The social and economic contexts of distribution and consumption will be discussed through examining how goods were exchanged in both formal market places and informally within their communities."
