Theme course

The content and theme of this course, which runs at 100%, is variable. It is designed to provide an in-depth portrayal and investigation of a selected special topic in Egyptology not fully covered in other courses.

For example, by the time of the C-level you will have studied Ancient Egyptian tomb architecture, but against this it might be useful to attend a more detailed course specifically on Egyptian burial customs involving a closer look at things such as burial rituals, the role of priests, the development of funerary literature, and the evolution in the techniques of mummification. Similarly, you may have taken interest in Egypt’s dealings with its neighbouring areas, and then you will benefit from a course devoted to the historical study of Egyptian foreign relations in its various forms (diplomacy, warfare, trade, etc.).

The content of the course will be decided separately for each academic year.
