Meroe, its history and archaeology are still ‘poor relations’ to Egypt and Egyptology; yet Meroe’s culture is striking and distinctive. Always reliant on trade with Egypt and the Mediterranean world, Meroe’s history is closely linked to Persian, Ptolemaic and Roman rule. Dr Robert Morkot will survey that historical relationship and how Meroe’s contacts led to a complex culture mixing indigenous Kushite with Egyptian, Hellenistic and Roman elements.

Dr Robert Morkot will present this talk via Zoom on 5 July 2020.
