In our latest podcast Dr Glenn Godenho, a Senior Lecturer in Egyptology, discusses what happened following the collapse of Egypt’s First Kingdom and how the text on Egyptian tombs could be likened to today’s LinkedIn profiles.
For many, ancient Egypt conjures up images of the Great Pyramids of Giza or the splendours of Tutankhamun’s tomb. A series of eras between those two well-known chapters in Egypt’s history are known as the intermediate periods. Historians have long referred to this time as a ‘dark age’.
Dr Godenho’s research focuses on this 120-year period and challenges the idea of it being ‘dark’ as it appears to actually be a time of innovation and cultural flourishing.
