Presented by Jessica Tomkins, Terrace Curatorial Research Associate in Egyptian Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Egyptology PhD Candidate, Brown University

Power in the Old Kingdom is epitomized by the Great Pyramids, those huge monuments which were, and remain to this day, symbolic of the sheer might and power of those Old Kingdom kings who dominate almost all surviving evidence. But what of those with lesser power, working underneath the king for the state at large — the men stationed throughout the provinces, running Egypt as local leaders and provincial administrators?
This talk examines our modern understanding of ancient administrative practices and traces the types of power held by provincial governors and administrators, highlighting how they expressed their power at various regional sites throughout Egypt.
