1,000 Miles Down the Nile

Steven Phillips PhD by Maryanne BarcellonaThe Tel Hai Life Enrichment Committee (LEC) invites community members to the first of a series of lectures on the rich history of ancient Egypt on Monday, December 15 at 1:00pm in the Chapel located on the Tel Hai campus off Beaver Dam Road, east of Route 10.

Dr. Stephen Phillips, Curatorial Research Coordinator of the Egyptian Section at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia will be the series lecturer. “Dr. Steve” has been engaged as a teacher, lecturer and featured speaker across eastern Pennsylvania and NJ. He has also served as a professional tour guide in Egypt and conducted extensive field and laboratory research as well.

The first session will offer a brief history and chronology of ancient Egypt by traveling the Nile River—home to literally hundreds of magnificent archaeological sites representing more than 5,0000 years of Egyptian civilization. The “journey” will travel from Abu Simbel to Alexandria with stops at famous sites in the Nile Delta, the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, Abu Sir and Saqqara, and the famed Valley of the Kings. Discussion will also include the ancient cities of Memphis, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel. Actual archaeological excavations not generally known by the public will also be “explored.” A program fee of $5 will be collected at the event.

Residents of LEC encourage their neighbors to take part in this exceptional series on Egyptian civilization. Directions to Tel Hai can be found on the community’s website: www.telhai.org under the “Contact us” tab on the home page. When using GPS please use the physical address—1200 Tel Hai Circle, Honey Brook.
