The purpose of this conference is to explore the fertile imaginary world of Middle Bronze Age Egypt (2000-1500BC) through its material culture and the archaeological sources from which such material is recovered.  

One principal focus will be on figurines in their immediate and wider archaeological context. We also aim to explore other objects which have traditionally been interpreted as tools for the protection of mother and child, all as products of an interwoven world.

The conference is an opportunity to explore how the ancient Egyptians populated their imaginary universe, combining different images, materials and objects - a "Company of Images".  The proceedings will be published in 2015.

NEW: (Sept 17): There is still time to register at Registration and Payment.
