D. Sweeney, "Women at Worship on Deir el-Medîna Stelae," in: J. Toivari-Viitala, T. Vartiainen, S. Uvanto (eds.), Deir el-Medina Studies. Helsinki June 24–26, Proceedings, Helsinki, 2014, 181-193.

Women at Deir el-Medîna erected stelae far more rarely than men did. This article assembles and discusses the 22 examples known so far (including a couple of stelae attributed to the site on stylistic grounds), the deities to whom they are dedicated, their iconography, and background information about the women who dedicated them and why they might have chosen to do so. As Gay Robins has shown, the decorum of Egyptian stela decoration required male stela donors to occupy the most prestigious position on the stela, closest to the god. A woman who wanted to dedicate a stela together with her...

Archaeology as a Social Science (M. Smith, Feinman, Drennan, Earle, and Morris 2012)

Because of advances in methods and theory, archaeology now addresses issues central to debates in the social sciences in a far more sophisticated manner than ever before. Coupled with methodological innovations, multiscalar archaeological studies around the world have produced a wealth of new data that provide a unique perspective on long-term changes in human societies, as they document variation in human behavior and institutions before the modern era. We illustrate these points with three examples: changes in human settlements, the roles of markets and states in deep history, and changes...

Understanding Early Bronze Age Urban Patterns from the Perspective of Non-Elite Neighbourhood: The Excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel. ICAANE Basel Proceedings. 2016

This paper describes some of the results of the excavations of the Early Bronze Age III non-elite neighbourhood in Area E of Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel. The neighbourhood contained a layout that is found at other EB urban centres, including sturdy small multi-room houses, often with a courtyard and in few cases a small storage room. Occupants had access to local and some interregional trade goods, used various recording methods, sacrificed expensive animals, and built and maintained the neighbourhood over a long period of time. These results are discussed in conjunction with other EB finds...

Architectural innovations influenced by climatic phenomena (4,2 ka event) in the late Old Kingdom (Egypt)

The work of the Polish-Egyptian Archaeological Mission at Saqqara revealed a cemetery of palace officials that was in use during the late Old Kingdom. The evidence found during the exploration of the tombs indicates that the tomb builders were aware of the problems resulting from torrential rains in last years of functioning of the cemetery and that architectural solutions have been invented against these problems. The discussed phenomena seem to be directly re- lated to the 4.2 ka event.
