Kate Spence Guest on 'In Our Time' Hatshepsut Broadcast

last modified Nov 07, 2014 01:37 PM
Dr Kate Spence, Division of Archaeology (University of Cambridge), participated in a BBC Radio 4 broadcast about the Egyptian pharaoh, Hatshepsut.

 

Kate Spence took part in the discussion about the Egyptian pharaoh Hatshepsut with other guests on Melvyn Bragg's BBC Radio 4 programme 'In Our Time'. 

Spence worked on an epigraphic project in Hatsheput's mortuary temple at Deir el-Bahari, run by the Polish Academy of Sciences, for a number of years in the 1990s, and also worked in one of her buildings at Karnak.

Hatshepsut, whose name means 'foremost of noble ladies' ruled Egypt from about 1479-1458 BC and some scholars argue that she was one of the most successful and influential pharaohs.  Hatshepsut built up Egyptian power by building up international trade and commissioned buildings considered masterpieces of Egyptian aarchitecture.  She also made significant changes to the ideology surrounding the pharaoh and the gods.

The programme was broadcast on Thursday 6th November and can be viewed at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04n62jx
