Dynasties 21-24 saw Libyan dominance in Ancient Egypt. This study examines a corpus of funerary stelae produced during this time to determine the effect of this period on the ways in which people projected their identity, particularly in terms of gender and ethnicity. Ultimately it concludes that many changes which can be identified in the funerary stelae reflect trends already existing in Egyptian culture, and that the single greatest concern in the stelae continues to be presentation of social status.
