About the Speakers

1. Prof. Karol Mysliwiec, University of Warsaw, Poland has had a long career as a field archaeologist on a wide range of sites in Egypt and is currently excavating in Saqqara, hence his interests overlap with those of Macquarie.  Prof. Mysliwiec will discuss:

A double necropolis in a quarry: Polish-Egyptian excavations in Saqqara Two posthumous neighbours (Mer-ef-neb-ef and Ny-ankh-Nefertem) from the Old Kingdom in Saqqara

2. Prof. Tamás Bács, Eötüs Loránd University, Budapest Hungary, and his team work in Thebes at Sheikh Abd el Gurna in a complex of tombs that has a wealth of material from the New Kingdom to the Coptic Period. TT65, in particular, has an interesting range of officials, periods, art, architecture and decoration programs and texts.  Prof. Bács also has a personal connection with Australia which he will no doubt tell us about. He will talk about:

Scribes and Secretaries, High Priests and Viceroys: Some mid Eighteenth Dynasty tomb-complexes on Sheikh Abd el-Qurna An Intriguing Mind: The chief temple archivist Imiseba and his mortuary monument
