Our successful collaboration with the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) continues with this seminar on Ancient Egypt. Join us in Raleigh in a wonderful setting where we’ll explore the world of ancient Egypt from its earliest developments as a civilization up through its status as a Roman province. Our speakers will introduce you to the many eras, artifacts, and cultures of the land through lectures on the Egyptian collection at the Museum, the impact of Egypt on Alexander the Great and his successors, and the role Egypt played in the Roman world and imagination. After our speakers conclude we’ll have a chance to tour the holdings at the museum itself. Sign up for this seminar and you’ll be sure to leave with a command of centuries of history and artistic achievement.
