We will explore the fascinating Late Period of ancient Egypt; a time which juxtaposes strength, renaissance, trade, cultural fusion and autonomy with occupation, conflict and division. The rule of Nubian Pharaoh Taharqa is followed by brief Assyrian involvement leading to Twenty-Sixth dynasty Egypt which, with high quality art and monumental tombs, should be considered one of the gems of Pharaonic history. This apogee of the Late Period is replaced by the first of two Persian occupations, the second of which is brought to an end by the shattering conquest of Alexander the Great in 332 BC
