  • Description:

    Abydos was a major cult center to Osiris, god of the dead, and its cemeteries were in use for 3500 years. Recent research has revealed much about Ptolemaic-period use of the site, including the development of the funerary landscape and intractions with earlier, Pharaonic remains.  FAST lectures are organized by students in the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology.
