This 5-week course will focus on the history and development of the largest religious complex ever constructed: Karnak. The complex was built and expanded upon over a period of 2000 years, functioning as the religious capital of Egypt for much of that time. The lives of the priests and priestesses who served there, in addition to the festivals they participated in, will also be explored.
In order to be as accessible as possible, this course will be run twice a week: Sunday evenings 6–8pm and Wednesday mornings 10am–12noon (UK time).
Additionally, one of the sessions will be recorded and made available for a limited time to registered participants.
