Flash Talk | What is Kawara and Why Was It Important in Human Subsistence in Ancient Egypt?

Richard Redding, University of Michigan
Friday, June 4, 2021
12:00-12:30 PM
In science and archaeology, we make assumptions to help us begin to interpret the scattered evidence of the past. But re-examining these assumptions can often reveal something new. In this talk, Richard Redding discusses how, in re-examining his own assumptions, he uncovered new insights into the diet of laborers at Giza in ancient Egypt.

Kelsey Museum Flash Talks are 15-minute Zoom lectures by Kelsey curators, staff members, researchers, and graduate students talking about their recent research or current projects. Each presentation is followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Flash Talks are free and open to all visitors. They take place at noon on the first Friday of every month.
