Have you always been fascinated by Egypt’s archaeological riches and the Nilotic landscapes in which the emerald green of the river and fertile fields are nestled in the desert? Join an Egyptologist to discover Luxor, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Luxor is densely packed with monuments as it was the capital for a long time. Here we will see the main highlights including the Valley of the Kings with its wonderful tombs such as Seti I and Tutankhamun’s; the temples of Karnak and Luxor, among the most important of the country and certainly the most powerful; and we will make a stop at the workers’ village of Deir el-Medina. This village was inhabited by the workers involved in the construction of the pharaohs’ tombs, and this site will allow us to have a sense of how daily life was at that time.

Led by an expert on Egyptology, Jade Bajeot—who herself has cruised the Nile and travels to Cairo and the Delta each year to participate in archaeological excavations—this seminar will provide an overview of the most important archaeological sites in Luxor. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of Egypt and its incredible historical legacy.

This seminar is an excerpt from Dr. Bajeot's Multi-Part Journey Egyptian Archaeology on the Nile: A Multi-Part Journey with Dr. Jade Bajeot

Jade Bajeot has an MA in Egyptology, where her dissertation focus was on the ancient Egyptian fortification system. For her Ph.D. in Archaeology, she specialized in the prehistory of Egypt, in particular the unpublished data of the Italian excavations carried out in the predynastic site of Maadi (Cairo). During her Ph.D., she spent six months in Cairo, at the French Institute of Archaeology (Ifao) where she had the opportunity to visit several archaeological sites. In 2014 she started to collaborate with the French mission that digs at Tell el-Iswid, a predynastic site located in the Nile Delta. She still works at Tell el-Iswid as a specialist in ceramic technology. She also had the opportunity to work at Tell el-Fara’in/Buto and Tell el-Samara (Nile Delta). She has published several papers on the subject and her Ph.D. thesis has been published as a monograph.

Luxor

thank you dear Jade for showing me how much has changed since I was there in April 1956. For one thing, the tombs in the Vally of the Kings are well lighted. In 1956, many times we lighted our way shining a mirror so that the sun hit it and the wall.Do you still get to the west side in those lovely sail boats/ I missed seeinng a close up of the pool that had a wonderful dung beetle( scarab) at one corner. I would love to go with you to Luxor one day but I am running out of time - age! thank you , for your entertaining tour.

Our once-in-a-lifetime trip to Egypt was canceled due to COVID 19 restrictions. I cannot decide if Dr. Bajeot's presentation eased that pain or made me even more anxious to visit the ancient sites she shared. It was a wonderfully enjoyable conversation which I highly recommend. This was my fifth Context Conversation, and they have all be enlightening as well as great fun.

Dr. Bajeot was once again incredibly great. I love the in-depth quality of her sessions. I learn something new every time I join a session. She answers all questions in a thorough manner. I am on my way to Egypt in October and I wish she could be my guide!
