Venue Oakwood Centre

Public Lecture:
By Prof. Rosalie David

Rosalie David's research on this temple, started in the early 1970s, was initially published as Religious Ritual at Abydos, c. 1300 BC (Warminster, 1973). This lecture will consider how a completely revised edition, published by the Egypt Exploration Society in 2016, has provided new and exciting opportunities to update this study of how this unique temple was designed and functioned as a ritual unit.
