Peter Lacovara, Ph.D. will trace the history of archaeology in Egypt from the first discoveries of Napoleon and the daring adventures of the early explorers, to the development of Egyptology as a science and great museum expeditions of the twentieth century. He will also detail the most recent excavations in Egypt and how they have built upon the past and are using new, scientific techniques to add to our knowledge of the land of the pharaohs. Dr. Peter Lacovara is senior curator of ancient Egyptian, Nubian and Near Eastern Art at the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University. His fieldwork includes the Valley of the Kings at Thebes and the Sphinx/Isis Temple.
