In this presentation, I introduce Dr. Wolfram Grajetzki and a brief series we recorded on Court Officials and Administration in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom.

In this lecture he takes us into his work as he discusses what we know, what we don't know and what we hope to find out about those who were the closest to the Pharaoh at the heart of the ancient Egyptian court.

We discuss the complexities of his work, hieroglyphs, deciphering palace titles and so much more! This is episode one of a brief trilogy on Ancient Egyptian Government in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom.

Dr. Grajetzki is a German Egyptologist. He studied at Free University of Berlin and made his Doctor of Philosophy at the Humboldt University of Berlin.He performed excavations in Egypt, but also in Pakistan. He has published articles and several books on the Egyptian Middle Kingdom, on administration, burial customs and queens. I encourage you all to check out his publicly available works on Academia but also check out the link to his authors page on Amazon, he has written extensively and I can't suggest his works enough and he is truly an excellent scholar who took the time to come on the show and to educate us on the obscure and the fascinating subject of ancient Egypt and those who made it function and especially at the court of the Pharaoh!
