Lecturer: Sarah Griffiths – Curator of the Manchester Egyptology Society
Date & Time : Saturday 17th February 2024 @ 4:15pm
Synopsis : The Middle Kingdom, seen as Egypt’s classical period for art, history and literature, began with the rise of a warrior king who reunified Egypt, re-established the country’s prosperity and international standing, and whose stunning mortuary temple became the template on which the great temples of the New Kingdom were based. Sarah Griffiths explores the reign and legacy of a pharaoh revered by later kings: Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II of the 11th Dynasty.
