Abstract


Public Lecture:
By Lucia Gahlin


The iconography and ideology of Akhenaten's queen, Nefertiti, were like no other. Exploring Amarna art  and the latest archaeological evidence, Lucia will trace the development of Nefertiti's image and her political and cultic status, within the context of the significance of royal women in Akhenaten's court and religion.

Lucia Gahlin teaches Egyptology for the University of Exeter and occasionally Bristol and is a Research Associate at UCL's Institute of Archaeology. She is affiliated with the Petrie Museum and has worked on excavations at Amarna. Her publications include Egypt. Gods, Myths and Religion. She regularly leads tours to Egypt.
