Ancient Egypt Alive at Thornhill Community Centre Library
June 1, 2016, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Thornhill Community Centre Library, 7755 Bayview Ave.
Mention the words ‘Ancient Egypt’ and people’s eyes
open wide in awe. The pyramids have, of course, bedazzled
visitors for more than four millenniums. Ancient Greek
historian Herodotus gazed upon them back in the 5th Century
BC. And, in more recent centuries, visitors from all around
the world have traveled up and down the Nile, visiting the
grand remains at Giza, exploring the rock cut tombs on
Luxor’s West Bank, and gazed in awe at Tutankhamun’s famous
golden mask in the Egyptian Museum. In this lecture, we
will explore the Giza plateau and its pyramids, sail
upstream to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings and the
workers to learn how craftspeople and commoners once lived.
We will even take a sacred pilgrimage to Abydos to visit
the great Temple of Seti I and finish with a visit to
Denderah, one of Egypt’s best preserved temples. You will
marvel at what these monuments look like millenniums after
their construction, and also consider the current
challenges and opportunities faced these ancient wonders.
Hop aboard our felucca, friends, as we sail the Nile, which
Herodotus claimed was Egypt’s great gift.
