The town mound of ancient Nekhen (Greek ‘Hierakonpolis’) is renowned for the fabulous discoveries made there by James Quibell and Frederick Green in 1897–99, including the spectacular ‘Main Deposit’ of early votive objects, many of which are now in the Ashmolean Museum. Liam McNamara, the Lisa and Bernard Selz Curator for Ancient Egypt and Sudan, will explore the history and development of the site and share the results of the Ashmolean’s most recent archaeological fieldwork and research in the temple enclosure.
