Southampton Ancient Egypt Society lecture with Glenn Godenho, speaking on: Being An Ideal Official In A Less Than Ideal World. Discoveries at a coastal fortress of Ramesses II, not far from the modern Libyan border have shown the commander was Nebre whose statue inscription reveals the sort of man he was and how he wished to be remembered. He tried to prove his worth as a high official, operating on the margins of Egyptian society in a foreign territory, in a military installation whose purpose and functions this talk will explore. Cost: members £4, non-members £6, including light refreshments (from 1.30pm). Venue: Oasis Academy Lordshill, Romsey Road SO16 8FA.
