Building the Pyramids
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Egypt and Nubia were home to many pyramids built over a span of 2,000 years, but it is the three pyramids belonging to Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure on the Giza plateau that continue to hold the fascination of the world. Building these monuments required the recruitment and organization of large work forces along with their support staff. This talk will highlight the most recent research regarding their construction and the impact it had on ancient Egyptian society. Exciting excavations in the shadow of the Giza pyramids at Heit el-Ghurab over the last 20 years have revealed the city from which these construction projects were administered. In 2015 a most unbelievable discovery was made when a team working along the Red Sea coast at a site called Wadi al-Jarf found the discarded journals and papers of a man who worked acquiring resources for building the Great Pyramid for Khufu at Giza. Never before has so much been known about the daily life of the pyramid builders.

Presented by Joey Cross, a Ph.D. student in both Egyptology and Hebrew Bible studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago.
