Daily Life for the Nobility.
At the height of the 18th Dynasty, c.1370 BCE, wealthy Egyptians were enjoying an unprecedented degree of comfort. In this episode we explore some general features of life: the domestic spaces they inhabited, the food they consumed (and how it may have been prepared) and the furniture (including cosmetics) which they took to the afterlife. It’s a broad-reaching episode, focussing on different aspects of their lives. Enjoy!
