ARC3RFC Essay: Tomb 100, Tomb U-J and Maadi South: Themes from Predynastic Egypt

by Caroline Seawright
Year 3 Essay for Rise and Fall of Civilisations at LaTrobe University, December 2013.

 

Synopsis:
The origins of ancient Egypt date from the Predynastic period until the Unification of Upper and Lower Egypt (5000-3035BC). Scattered Predynastic chiefdoms became a civilisation through the imposition of order from chaos, derived from divinely conferred kingly power. Early powerful cities were found in Lower Egypt at Maadi (Maadi-Buto culture), and in Upper Egypt at Nekhen (Nekhen culture) and Abdju (This culture) (Scarre & Fagan 2008, p. 113-115; Maps 1-2). I will test my hypothesis by investigating these themes at each of the sites, as evidence for the themes should be represented in the archaeological record.
