The talk will be 'virtual' - like the talks given in June and July 2020.
Dr Kate Spence: 'House And Home: Urbanism And Society At Amarna.'
Using published records of houses and suburbs at Amarna, this talk investigates what can be learned about ancient Egyptian society in the New Kingdom from the archaeological remains excavated in the first half of the Twentieth Century.

Her research interests are in the areas of the built environment and material culture of ancient Egypt and North Sudan, particularly during the New Kingdom.
