Speaker's Night: The Ancient Egyptian Sky

Dr Sarah Symons, McMaster University
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Astronomical knowledge from ancient Egypt has survived to the present day carved and painted in tombs and temples along the Nile.  In this talk, Dr. Sarah Symons describes three types of ancient text from which we can learn how the ancient Egyptians viewed the sky, now they depicted and described celestial objects, and how they explained the phenomena they observed.
