The Oriental Institute Lecture Series organized by the University of Chicago brings notable scholars from around the country and abroad as they present on new breakthroughs, unique perspectives, and innovative research applications related to the Ancient Middle East.
The Origins of Two Provincial Capitals in Upper Egypt: The Two Sister-Sites of Tell Edfu and Dendara
Presented by Nadine Moeller, Associate Professor of Egyptian Archaeology, and Gregeory Marouard, Research Associate, The Oriental Institute. 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 provides 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.
