Back in Vienna, getting ready for London

The 7. Tagung zur Königsideologie last week in Prague was perfectly organized and very interesting! Nubia was not the focus of the conference, but I learned a lot from a number of papers and enjoyed the discussion of various aspects of kingship and authority. I will continue to work on my proposed development of Sai Island in the 18th Dynasty, with a distinct change during the reign of Thutmose III/Amenhotep II noticeable in the architecture and the material culture as well as the textual evidence. Some aspects I did already mention in Prague will be further explained next week in London at the forthcoming colloquium at the British Museum “Nubia in the New Kingdom” – we’ll keep you posted!
