This course examines the history of ancient Egypt from the rise of the Egyptian state to the end of the 18th Dynasty in the New Kingdom, a period of more than 1500 years. This span encompasses three separate “golden ages” of Egyptian history and culture, from the pyramid builders of the Old Kingdom through the Middle Kingdom renaissance to the expansionist era of the early New Kingdom, the time of king Tutankhamun. By looking at both political and social history this course will allow students to examine the differences as well as the similarities between these periods, and come to a better understanding of the factors, internal and external, which influenced Egyptian historical development.
