Event Details

Kicking off our series of Ancient Civilizations is The Hyksos – According to the Ancient Egyptians, no other nation could compare to their own history, culture, and superiority.  Yet one very controversial nation, the Hyksos, invaded Egypt and altered their own culture.  To the Egyptians this was a terrible blow, and from that point onward, the Hyksos were maligned.  But is the Egyptian historical record accurate about the Hyksos or were they wrongfully framed as a barbaric people?  This lecture will explore this provocative controversy.  Lecture presented by Alexander Clemente.

Ancient Civilizations Series – While Egypt, Babylonia, Greece, and Rome rightfully attract a great amount of study and attention, there are still some civilizations that accomplished much, while being largely forgotten.  This series attempts to remedy that problem.  We will take a detailed look at five lesser-known civilizations of the Ancient World and consider their culture, achievements, and even possibly why they became marginalized.  We will also feature The Phoenicians (August 12) and The Etruscans (August 19)  Pleaser register for one or all, individually.
