Join the American Research Center in Egypt: Arizona Chapter in welcoming Dr. Heidi Kopp-Junk from Trier University, Germany for a special lecture and fundraising concert!
Fundraiser: $30.00/Person, $20.00/Student. RSVP by Oct 9, 2015 at AZARCEGYPT@gmail.com
Lecture: Today we associate travel mainly with tourism, but this differs greatly from the evidence and records of ancient Egyptian’s. Who travelled in ancient Egypt and why? Was only the high society on the move? Did they travel just for fun or for economic reason? And, how did they travel? Dr. Heidi Kopp-Junk from Trier University, Germany, answers these questions and shows the means of locomotion ancient Egyptians used on their journeys, from the sedan chair of Hetepheres, Khufu’s mother, to the chariot of Akhenaten and Nefertiti.
Fundraiser Concert: Classically trained, Dr. Heidi Kopp sings love songs from ancient Egypt from the time of Ramesses the Great in translation and even Old Egyptian. She portrays love in ancient Egypt from various papyri: tender, humorous, sometimes satirical, but especially very romantic – a breathtaking and exhilarating concert. Dinner included. $30.00/Person, $20.00/Student. RSVP by Oct 9, 2015 at AZARCEGYPT@gmail.com.
