Egypten, modul 2

Idag har jag så smått börjat läsa in mig på litteraturen rörande andra omgången frågor, som är:

1. How do the building materials used for different types of buildings reflect the basic Egyptian ideology? Discuss briefly.

2. How were towns and cities organized? Was there town planning? How many towns/cities do we know of, both artificial and organic (name some of each)?

3. Royal burials in the OK, the MK and the NK, royal, upper class and the poor?

4. Why do you think there was renewed pyramid building in the 12th dynasty? What was the message projected? Explain this in view of the historical context.

5. Wall paintings – What were some of the most common themes? the purposes? The techniques?

6. Mentuhotep II’s and Hatshepsut’s funerary monuments – describe them. Are they similar? Place them in their historical contexts. Again, what messages should be understood by the viewers (then and now)?

Hittills verkar det kul, lite roligare än första delen. Är sugen på att köpa en bok till, men jag tror jag ska försöka bärga mig och kanske låna ett par på biblioteket i stället. Hade den varit billigare så kanske…
