Presented by Nadine Moeller, Associate Professor of Egyptian Archaeology, Oriental Institute (and Gregory Marouard, Research Associate, Oriental Institute)
The Origins of Two Provincial Capitals in Upper Egypt: The Two Sister-Sites of Tell Edfu and Dendara
The ongoing fieldwork at Tell Edfu has recently focused on the excavation of a settlement quarter dating to the 3rd millennium BCE which pushes back the origins of the town of Edfu to the 4th Dynasty (ca. 2550 BCE). The newest addition to the Oriental Institute’s fieldwork program in Egypt, at the ancient provincial capital of Dendara, has also led to new insights into the oldest settlement remains and the original foundation of this city. This lecture will provide an overview of the most recent results from both sites offering a comparative perspective on the long-term development of early urban centers in southern Egypt. The fieldwork at Dendara takes place under the concession of the IFAO and is part of a larger collaboration between the IFAO, Macquarie University, and the Oriental Institute.
