Research interests

Georgia’s research involves a detailed comparitive analysis of ancient Egyptian funerary models and wall scenes from the Old and Middle Kingdom cemeteries of Meir, El-Bersha and Beni Hassan. The similarities between the two types of artwork are regularly highlighted by scholars, but her close examination has revealed that the two media also exhibit a number of significant differences. This has led to a more accurate understanding of the relationship between the two media and their unique roles within the tomb.
