What did the average ancient Egyptian do all day long? We hear numerous tales of life amongst the elite, of royal palaces and magnificent temples, but how did the rest of the population live?

How were communities structured? Who had access to education? How did families function? How did they spend their leisure time? What afflictions and ailments were commonplace? This course reveals what archaeology has taught us about private and social life in the villages and towns during the Middle and New Kingdoms. After all, alongside the pharaohs and gods, most ancient Egyptians were just ordinary people trying to get by.

This series of two-hour lectures is held on Thursday evenings over six weeks. There is a short break half-way through each session, and you are welcome to bring refreshments if you wish.
