We seem to know so much about the ancient Egyptians, because they left a wealth of texts and images. However, the majority of the subjects were elite, adult males. This course uses archaeology, anthropology and documentary evidence to complete the fascinating picture of ancient Egyptian society, by illuminating the lives of those who appear ‘silent’: women, children, the poor, the disabled and foreigners.
