The First Pharaohs: Early Dynastic Egypt

Course Synopsis

The Early Dynastic Period spans the five centuries preceding the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza. This was the formative period of ancient Egyptian civilization, and it witnessed the creation of a distinctive culture that was to endure for 3,000 years.

This five-week course examines the earliest periods of Egyptian history, from the Palaeolithic Period through to the first pharaohs. It discusses the formation of the Egyptian state, the earliest rulers, the origins of Egyptian religion, the art and architecture, and burial customs.


    • Week 1: (Sunday 05th March or Wednesday 08th March): Egypt before the Pharaohs
    • Week 2: (Sunday 12th March or Wednesday 15th March): The First Dynasty
    • Week 3: (Sunday 19th March or Wednesday 22nd March): The Second Dynasty
    • Week 4: (Sunday 26th March or Wednesday 29th March): The Origins of Egyptian Religion
    • Week 5: (Sunday 02nd April or Wednesday 05th April): Art, Architecture, and Early Technologies


In order to be as accessible as possible, this 5-week course will be run twice, with sessions taking place via Zoom:

    • Sunday evenings 6–8pm (UK time) – Starting Sunday 5 March
    • Wednesday mornings 10am–noon (UK time) – Starting Wednesday 8 March


A week before the course starts you will be emailed the Zoom link, which can be used for both sessions. Therefore, participants will have the option of attending either day, or both!



This course costs £40, with fees going directly to supporting the Egypt Centre. In particular, the funds will be used to support the development of the Egypt Centre displays. Additionally, participants have the option of adding an extra donation if they wish. Donations, of course, are greatly appreciated!
