The 19th Dynasty in ancient Egypt was a period of great strength. During the foundation of this dynasty, Egypt would extend its influence to its greatest extent into the Levant. With large reserves of wealth, large architectural projects would be constructed that come to rival the pyramids in their size and splendor. Through this lecture, we will discuss the general political developments and take a close look at the artistic works that characterize the period.
