In this program, Egyptologist and Princeton PhD Candidate, Emily Smith-Sangster, will take us on a journey through an excavation.

Using her recent excavation at the site of Abydos, Egypt as a case study, she will cover everything from proposing an excavation project, to the thrill of discovering a new cemetery - and everything in between. This program will also touch briefly on some of the most popular topics associated with Egypt and Egyptology.

Presenter: Emily Smith-Sangster is a current Ph.D. Candidate at Princeton University studying the expression of identity in the early New Kingdom (ca. 1550 BCE). She has been granted two M.A.’s, the first from NYU in Ancient Near Eastern and Egyptian Studies, and the second From Princeton University in Art and Archaeology and a B.A. from Monmouth University in Anthropology. Emily is also an active field archaeologist currently serving as an excavation supervisor for the Abydos South Project in Egypt.
