What’s In A Name? MAES Monday 8th February

Our next Zoom meeting is on Monday 8th February and we welcome back the charismatic Glenn Godenho!

Glenn Godenho: What’s in a Name? Patterns of People at the End of the Old Kingdom.

Djau, Ibi, Khu, Kheti – all names that tend to recur in key locations at the end of the Old Kingdom. Of course, same and similar names do not at all imply a collective of blood-relatives running the administrative machine at provincial centres. However, a closer look at the extant evidence starts to show patterns of provincial rulership that may help us to better understand the balance of power as the Old Kingdom draws to a close.

Dr Glenn Godenho began Egyptological training at Birkbeck College, London, and then studied for BA, MA and PhD at the University of Liverpool, where he now works as a Senior Lecturer in Egyptology and Academic Director of the Institution’s Continuing Education Department. He is part of a Liverpool-Bonn First Intermediate Period research group that aims to bring a number of related projects together from both institutions.
