Apprenticeship in Ancient Egypt

April 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

Free and open to the public.

Archaeologists study stylistic and technological changes in excavated materials — especially pottery — to better understand developments in ancient Egyptian society. However, little attention has focused on using the archaeological record to understand the transfer of cultural knowledge.

How did people learn the arts and crafts of potters, basket makers, metalworkers and scribes? Willeke Wendrich will explore the social history of learning in ancient Egypt and what it can teach us about the present.
