Finding the God Osiris: Latest Excavations at Abusir and Saqqara
Miroslav Bárta will present the latest results from archaeological research at Abusir and Saqqara, two ancient Egyptian cemeteries, in a hybrid lecture on Thursday, Sept. 28. The exploration of several historically essential tombs dating to the Fifth Dynasty sheds new light on the rise and fall of the Old Kingdom empire and the introduction of the god of afterlife, Osiris, into ancient Egyptian society. This event is free, but registration is required for in-person and virtual attendees. Free event parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage. This event is presented by Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.
