Sowohl die Beurteilung des religionsgeschichtlichen Quellenwerts der Plutarch-Schrift "De Iside et Osiride" aus ägyptologischer als auch die Bewertung der Aktualität des Kenntnisstandes Plutarchs und anderer Autoren aus klassisch-philologischer Perspektive sind bislang durch fehlende interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit erschwert worden. In diesem Band werden nun die Beiträge zu einer Tagung veröffentlicht, die 2014 in Würzburg mit dem Ziel abgehalten wurde, jene Fachgrenzen zu überwinden. Der daraus hervorgegangene Tagungsband, zu dem renommierte Plutarchforscher und Platonismusspezialisten ebenso beigetragen haben wie auf den interkulturellen Austausch in ptolemäisch-römischer Zeit spezialisierte Ägyptologen, spiegelt den beiderseitigen Erkenntnisprozess wider: Plutarch, Jamblich, Prophyrios, Synesios oder die hermetsichen Autoren fanden die ägyptische Religion nicht als monolithischen, unveränderlichen Block vor, sondern noch als lebendige Praxis. Die Wiedergabe des von ihnen Rezipierten kann nur im Kontext der für sie so typischen Suche nach altem Wissen verstanden werden. Dieser Band legt damit den Grundstein für einen intensivierten Dialog zwischen der klassisch-altertumswissenschaftlichen genauso wie der ägyptologischen Seite.

This volume forms the proceedings of the conference, Egypt in its African Context, which took place at The Manchester Museum, University of Manchester, UK, on the 3-4 October 2009. The conference at Manchester had a number of aims: to address perceptions of Ancient Egypt in the West, in scholarly writing and public understanding; to present a scholarly approach to the subject of Egypt in Africa in order to counterbalance the extreme Afrocentric views within which such a debate is often contextualised; to investigate how community groups and professional Egyptologists can transfer their knowledge and points of view; and to present the work of scholars working on African-centred Egyptology to a wider audience including the traditional academic Egyptological community. Contents: Introduction: Egypt in its African Context (C. A. Folorunso and Stephen Quirke); 1) The Strategic Importance of Kemet (Kimani S. K. Nehusi); 2) The Nubian Pastoral Culture as Link between Egypt and Africa: A View from the Archaeological Record (Maria Carmelo Gatto); 3) The Predynastic Bos primigenius as a Royal Image of Territory, Boundaries and Power in an African Context (Ana I. Navajas Jimenez); 4) Some Notes about an Early African Pool of Cultures from which Emerged the Egyptian Civilisation (Alain Anselin); 5) Egypt in Afrika and Afrika in Egypt: The Example of Libation (Kimani S. K. Nehusi); 6) Meroitic Worship of Isis at Philae (Solange Bumbaugh); 7) Critical Comments on Essays on Interpreting Ancient Egypt presented at the Egypt in its African Context Conference (Charles A. Grantham); 8) Contesting Egypt: Facts, Rhetoric or Sentiment? (C. A. Folorunso); 9) West African Perspectives on Ancient Egypt: African Renaissance (Jose Lingna-Nafafe); 10) Petrie's Revolutions: The Case of the Qurneh Queen (Bill Manley); 11) Public Understandings of Ancient Egypt in the Formation of Dalit and Afro-American Identities and History Curriculum (Clyde Ahmad Winters); 12) Curating Kemet, Fear of a Black Land?

African Connections

An Archaeological Perspective on Africa and the Wider World

From the exodus of early modern humans to the growth of African diasporas, Africa has had a long and complex relationship with the outside world. More than a passive vessel manipulated by external empires, the African experience has been a complex mix of internal geographic, environmental, sociopolitical and economic factors, and regular interaction with outsiders. Peter Mitchell attempts to outline these factors over the long period of modern human history, to find their commonalities and development over time. He examines African interconnections through Egypt and Nubia with the Near East, through multiple Indian Ocean trading systems, through the trans-Saharan trade, and through more recent incursion of Europeans. The African diaspora is also explored for continuities and resistance to foreign domination. Commonalities abound in the African experience, as do complexities of each individual period and interrelationship. Mitchell s sweeping analysis of African connections place the continent in context of global prehistory and history. The book should be of interest not only to Africanists, but to many other archaeologists, historians, geographers, linguists, social scientists and their students."

From Lake to Sand. The Archaeology of Farafra Oasis Western desert, Egypt

The volume presents all the data collected during the cycle of research conducted by the Italian Archaeological Mission in the Farafra Oasis between 1990 and 2005. The 29 multidisciplinary essays contained in this book provide a detailed picture of the population of the Farafra Oasis, hitherto one of the least well known within the Western Desert. Farafra became particularly important during the middle Holocene, the period when climate conditions were most favourable, with later brief humid episodes even in the historic periods. The results of the long-term research cycle presented here, combined with data from the survey of the whole Wadi el Obeiyid still in progress, allow the authors to identify changes in the peopling of the oasis and to define various occupation phases. The new chronology for the Wadi el Obeiyid is one of the main achievements of the book and, as demonstrated in the final chapter, is in complete agreement with the main cultural units of other territories in the Western Desert. On this chronological basis, the contacts between the latter and the populations established on the Nile are brought into sharper focus. The importance of the archaeological documents discovered at Farafra and, at the same time their fragility due to the deterioration of the physical environment and the uncontrolled human activities, make us fear for their conservation. We hope that this book, with its complete documentation of the precious nature of the Farafra Oasis landscape and its archaeological heritage, may help to promote more effective policies for its safeguard.

The excavation report of a Neolithic cemetery (at site R2) on the east back of the Nile, the most detailed to date. Chapters look at the grave goods, including pottery, lithic tools, stone gems, and animal remains used both for tools and ornaments, and at the human skeletal and dental remains. Bio-archaeology provides evidence for the diet and health of the population, whilst grave goods offer evidence of chronology and social complexity. Tentative conclusions about the relative roles of hunting, herding and agriculture are offered.

Priene gilt als Inbegriff einer hellenistischen Stadt Kleinasiens, deren Architektur im Mittelpunkt der bisherigen Veröffentlichungen stand. Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit werden erstmals zwei umfangreiche und repräsentative Fundkomplexe einschließlich aller keramischer Gattungen (Tafel- und Haushaltsgeschirr, Amphoren, Lampen und Ziegel) unter Einbezug archäometrischer Methoden (WD-XRF, Dünnschliff- und Schwermineral Analysen) zur Herkunftsbestimmung der Fundkeramik vorgelegt. Der späthellenistischen Auffüllung aus der Südhalle des Athenaheiligtums ist die frühkaiserzeitliche Planierschicht der Insula E5 innerhalb der nordwestlichen Wohnbebauung gegenübergestellt. Beide Fundkomplexe können als geschlossene Befunde behandelt werden und daher als wichtige Bezugspunkte für Keramikforschung in Kleinasien gelten.

Archaeology and Women draws together from a variety of angles work currently being done within a contemporary framework on women in archaeology. One section of this collection of original articles addresses the historical and contemporary roles of women in the discipline. Another attempts to link contemporary archaeological theory and practice to work on women and gender in other fields. Finally, this volume presents a wide diversity of theoretical approaches and methods of study of women in the ancient world, representing a cross section of work being carried out today under the broad banner of gender archaeology. The geographical and chronological range of the contributions is also wide, from Southeast Asia and South America to Western Asia, Egypt and Europe, from Great Britain to Greece, and from 10,000 years ago to the recent past. An ideal sampler for courses dealing with women and archaeology.
