Women of ancient Egypt discussed Oct. 16

On Oct. 16, Monica Bontty will present "The Other Women of Ancient Egypt," as part of the Chautauqua Nexus series.

Of her upcoming talk, Bontty said, "The best known woman in Egyptian history was not even an Egyptian - Cleopatra was pharaoh of Egypt, the last ruler of the Ptolemaic line that was established by one of the generals of Alexander the Great ... This talk explores the fascinating world of the 'Other women of ancient Egypt' and provides information representing a range of perspectives on women, gender and sexuality in ancient Egypt."

Nexus presentations are free, informal and open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend. ULM FRYS students are encouraged to attend.
