Den svarta pyramiden

Norden Vue des Pyramides

Mødedato: Torsdag d. 16. 3 2023 kl. 18

Lokale: KUA – 15A.0.13

Den svarta pyramiden: Fakta och fiktion i nordisk tidigmodern egyptologi v. Joachim Östlund, docent och lektor i historia vid Lunds Universitet

I början av 1700-talet kom vetetenskapsresenärer från Sverige och Danmark att besöka Egypten i syfte att utforska dess fornhistoria. Dessa expeditioner genomfördes under en tid då nya vetenskapliga ideal kom att utmana äldre teorier om det forntida Egypten. Detta föredrag handlar om vilka teorier som överlevde, utmanades eller omvärderades samt vilken kunskap som producerades om det forntida Egypten i Norden.

Lørdagsseminar om Amarna

Mødedato: lørdag d. 25. marts 2023 kl. 11-16

Lokale: KUA – 23.0.49

Kl. 11 – Gravpladserne i Akhetaten, v. Ph.d. Sofie Schiodt, Postdoc Eberhard Karls Universität, Tübingen

Siden 2006 har et internationalt hold af forskere foretaget udgravninger af en række gravpladser i Amarna (oldtidens Akhetaten). Denne by blev grundlagt af farao Akhenaten, som kun regerede i 17 år, hvorefter byen blev forladt, og den giver dermed et enestående øjebliksbillede af Ægypten i det 14. århundrede f.v.t. I december 2022 færdiggjorde vi den sidste udgravningssæson ved gravpladserne, og mens der stadig ligger meget databehandlingsarbejde forude, har udgravningerne allerede givet os et fascinerende indblik i, hvordan livet så ud for den almene ægypter under Akhenaten. I dette foredrag vil jeg fortælle om de opdagelser, vi har gjort i løbet af det årelange arbejde, og hvilken ny viden det bidrager med.

Kl. 12.15 – Frokost (medbring selv mad og drikke)

Kl. 13 -The Great Aten Temple at Amarna: 2012-2022, v. Barry Kemp – zoom i lokalet

The Great Aten Temple at Amarna: 2012-2022, v. Barry Kemp, Director of the Amarna Project, Senior Research Fellow at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research and Professor Emeritus at Cambridge University

The Amarna Project commenced its work at the site of the Great Aten Temple in 2012 and has continued until now. The temple comprises a space measuring 750 x 270 m, surrounded by a thick mud-brick wall. Inside are the remains of two stone temples: the Long Temple towards the front (in the past identified with the building with the ancient name Gempa-aten) and the Sanctuary towards the back. This leaves the greater part of the space within the enclosure unaccounted for.

Most of the expedition’s work so far has been concentrated on the Long Temple and the ground in front. It had previously been excavated by the Egypt Exploration Society in 1932 (the director being John Pendlebury). In further pursuit of an answer, in 2021 and 2022 a new excavation was begun at the very back of the temple enclosure (carried out by Fabien Balestra, a member of the expedition). It began with a re-examination of a wide gateway flanked by buttresses attached to the enclosure wall, first identified in 1932. Beyond it and within the temple enclosure, two adjacent areas have been excavated.

The programme of the expedition includes the rebuilding of the outlines of the temple in new stone blocks once an area has been cleaned and recorded by drawing and photography. The costs of the stone blocks (purchased from a fine limestone quarry at El-Tura) are partly borne by public subscription.

The digital reconstructions of the temple which appear in the lecture are the work of Paul Docherty.

Kl. 14.15 – Pause

Kl. 14.45 – Colours for the Aten: The Manufacture of Glass and Faience in the workshops of Amarna, v. Anna K. Hodgkinson

When the new capital city of Akhetaten was established, workshops and craftspeople were required to furnish and embellish the palaces, temples and the villas of the elite. Colourful inlays from faience, glass and stone were produced, and these would adorn architecture, wooden furniture and burial equipment, creating beautiful marshland scenes and images of royal power.
Jewellery, and cosmetic vessels from faience and glass, were popular throughout the population and produced in great numbers. Focussing on the results of recent fieldwork at Amarna site M50.14-16 and glass-working experiments, this lecture will discuss both how glass- and faience objects were made, and what role a domestic workshop had in the city of Amarna.

The Obelisks of the Caesars: Egyptomania in Ancient Rome v. Luigi Prada efterfulgt af auktion over Lises bøger og effekter

Mødedato: Tirsdag d. 18/4 2023 kl 18.00
Lokale: KUA2 10.3.28 (frokoststuen på TORS)

Først foredrag efterfulgt af auktion over Lises bøger og effekter

The Obelisks of the Caesars: Egyptomania in Ancient Rome v. Luigi Prada, Assistant Professor of Egyptology, Uppsala Universitet

Today, there are more obelisks standing in Rome than there are in any other city, including Egypt—with more to be found in other locations around Italy and what used to be the Roman Empire.

Starting with Augustus and for centuries since, the Romans removed from Egypt tens of obelisks to display them in their cities as monuments to their power. But the Roman interest in Egypt’s obelisks was not limited to their re-use as political propaganda. In several cases, the Romans themselves commissioned new obelisks, having them carved with unique and peculiar inscriptions.

Far from being spoils of war, such obelisks stand as ancient monuments of cultural appropriation, through which Rome’s emperors and notables claimed for themselves Egypt’s linguistic, religious, and artistic traditions.
This talk will present the story of Rome’s fascination with ancient Egypt and its obelisks, focusing on a number of particularly significant case studies. By integrating the study of their social and cultural context with newly prepared textual and epigraphic analyses of their inscriptions, it will show how Egyptian obelisks—commissioned by both emperors and private citizens—not only fitted in the Empire’s political agenda, but also constituted part of the cultural life of its elites.

Oldægypten i København: De Dødes By

Mødedato: Lørdag d. 13. maj Kl. 14
Mødested: Nørrebros Runddel ved indgangen til Assistens Kirkegård.

Oldægypten i København: De Dødes By. Gåtur med Ph.d. Ole Herslund

Vigtigt! Husk at medbringe et Rejsekort eller lign., da turen delvist går via Metroen. Turen slutter ved Frederiksberg Gamle Kirkegård.

På tværs af landet kan man på diverse kirkegårde se historiske gravmonumenter, der er direkte inspireret af faraonisk arkitektur og symbolik.

De gamle kirkegårde i København og på Frederiksberg er ingen undtagelse, så endnu engang er det tid til at snøre vandreskoene og denne gang besøge nogle af de gravanlæg, som har hentet inspiration fra det oldægyptiske formsprog. Turen tager os delvist igennem vores egen historie og kulturarv men giver også mulighed for at opridse både paralleller og kontraster mellem dansk gravskik og den faraoniske verden.

En verden, der jo er så kendt for sine elaborerede og ofte monumentale begravelser. I punktnedslag vil der være fokus på såkaldt mausoleum-kultur, gravbesøg, ihukommelse af forfædre og hvorledes monumentale gravanlæg kan være med til at skabe en fælles kulturel hukommelse.
