Willeke Wendrich, Joan Silsbee Chair of African Cultural Archaeology; Professor of Egyptian Archaeology and Digital Humanities, University of California, Los Angeles

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.

Presented by the Harvard Semitic Museum.
