This course will explore the fascinating second half of the 18th dynasty, from the reign of the pharaoh Thutmose IV to that of Horemheb (c1400 – 1295 BC); a period of some of Egypt’s most intriguing rulers, notably Amenhotep III and Akhenaten, pharaohs who dared to do things differently.

An era of Egyptian history when fabulous art and architecture reflected religious innovation; when the sun and king were combined to most dazzling effect. An innovative era brought to an end by the traditionalist military leader Horemheb.

Residential Fees From: £376.   Non Residential: £252

Course runs from Dinner on Monday to Lunch on Wednesday.
