It’s been in the news recently because of new, stunning discoveries, and the object of documentaries for a long time before: yet the site of Saqqara never ceases to astonish. There are seemingly no depths to this famous Egyptian site, used from the Early Dynastic period down to the end of the Roman occupation, home to the tombs of kings and courtiers, a grand total of eleven pyramids, some of the best-preserved mummies we have for Ancient Egypt, temples, statues, and much more besides. In this course we will investigate the archaeology of Saqqara in chronological order, starting with the early occupation to the site and down to the Roman period. We will pay particular attention to the most recent discoveries and try to place this astounding site within the larger context of the evolving Egyptian culture.
