About Pyramids & Golden Treasures: Ancient Egypt in the mind of contemporary Egyptians
Perspectives on ancient Egypt among contemporary Egyptians were shaped in modern times by displays in Egyptian museums, publications made for general audience and by the transferred narratives of exploring Egyptian antiquities since the 19th century. In the second half of the 20th century and since then, these views are mainly shaped by fiction movies, literature and visual arts featuring ancient Egyptian inspirations. The lecture will explore actual perceptions of ancient Egyptian heritage among various groups of audiences in contemporary Egypt.
