2nd Workshop: Egyptian Riverine Harbours
On the 17th and 18th of September 2018, the workshop Egyptian Riverine Harbours took place for the second time. The workshop is organized by the French, Austrian and Netherlands-Flemish institutes in Cairo and the Leuven Egyptologists. Harco Willems held his lecture on the relation between the antique city of Shemun (Ashmunein/Hermopolis Magna) and the former bed of the Nile in this part of Middle Egypt. Following this workshop, which was meant for a limited audience in 2017 and 2018, a major International Symposium on the same theme will be organized in 2019 in Cairo.
