This Tuesday Spotlight lecture within our wider theme of Wonders of Egypt explores the most well-known sites and discoveries from Egypt by highlighting the aspects that are less known or often overlooked.

Visitors and students of Egyptian temples are familiar with their core components: vast enclosure walls, towering pylons, elegant hypostyle halls, and dark sanctuaries. But many of these well-known temples have features which are less frequently seen by the average visitor - some tucked behind walls, others buried right beneath your feet, and even a few hiding in plain sight! This lecture will give a short introduction to a few of these eclectic elements from a handful of temples in Upper Egypt.
