Lecture Information: 

Textual and archaeological evidence have shown that the town of Edfu developed into an important regional center during the 3rd millennium BCE serving as a provincial capital. But with the onset of the First Intermediate Period, which is often perceived as a time of widespread famine and economic crisis, limited textual evidence and dearth of archaeological material have obscured the realities of daily life from the inhabitants of this influential site.
