 A talk by Prof Aidan Dodson, honorary Professor of Egyptologist at the University of Bristol.
Prof Dodson has a particular interest in the history of the late 14th century BC in Egypt. He has written three books on the period, including a biography of Queen Nefertiti, published by the American University in Cairo Press in 2020. This afternoon he will outline what we know, what we may justifiably infer, and what we might guess, about this woman, who was wife of Akhenaten, the pharaoh who abolished the Egyptian pantheon in favour of a single sun-god. She may also have been the mother of Tutankhamun and possibly reigned alongside him during his earliest years as a boy-king.
