Ancient Egypt: A history in six objects - University of Manchester | Coursera

There is now a start date for this FREE course which can be taken by anyone all over the world.



Ancient Egypt: A history in six objects - University of Manchester | Coursera: This course provides an introduction to ancient Egyptian history, using six items from the collections of The Manchester Museum. These items have been carefully chosen to reflect the development of the dynastic age through their origin, manufacture, decoration, and use. Week by week we will examine a different artefact and place it in its social and historical context. This will allow us to journey from Predynastic Egypt and its first king, Narmer, to Greco-Roman Egypt and its final queen, Cleopatra.
