Ramses the Great through Nubian Eyes

The Battle of Kadesh looms large in our perception of Ramses the Great—and, 

to judge from his many representations of it, in his perception of himself.  

But how did he represent himself in Nubia?  And what was life like in Nubia

under Ramses' rule?  These and other questions will be addressed in this lecture.
