Our Christmas Lecture this year is given by Associate Professor Maria Nilsson and Assistant Director of the Gebel-el Silsila project John Ward.
Gebel-el-Silsila in the Late and Graeco-Roman Period
In this lecture we will deal primarily with Silsila in the early Roman period, what evidence of quarrying and industrial administration can tell us about the industrial side of the site. You will also find out about a military presence here and even of officers migrating from Gaul! We will also explore some of the enigmatic symbols that were carved into the quarries as a form of religious communication! -Some of the exciting topics to discuss as we look at Silsila in this period.
