In the September lecture for The Arts Society Gainsborough and District, Lucia Gahlin discussed ‘The Colossal Art and Architecture of Egypt’s Boldest Pharaoh’.

Ramesses II (c1279 – 1213 BCE) is known by many as ‘Ramesses the Great’. He left his mark throughout Egypt, building extraordinary temples (notably Abu Simbel and the Ramesseum), and adorning them with colossal statues of himself, his wives and mother.

Lucia Gahlin, renowned specialist in the archaeology of Egypt, explored the art and architecture of this particularly long reign, and pieced together the great achievements of this bold ruler during a golden age of Egypt’s pharaonic history.

The 5th October lecture welcomes Ed Linert speaking on ‘Music: The Beatles’ Liverpool’.
