From the heights of the Pyramids at Giza to the depths of the Valley of the Kings, the ancient Egyptian civilization has been a source of wonder for more than a millennium. While ancient Egypt is today mostly known for their dedication to their deaths and afterlives, the vibrant society of the Nile Valley’s best-known culture can be seen reflected in the visual culture they left behind.

Megan Paqua received her BA in archaeology from Dickinson College in 2011 and went on to complete an MA in Egyptology from the American University in Cairo in 2015, where she participated in archaeological fieldwork at the site of Tell el-Amarna with the Amarna Project. After returning to the U.S., she began teaching art history courses at Fairfield University, and completed an MS in museums and digital culture from the Pratt Institute School of Information. She is currently the registrar for the Fairfield University Art Museum.
