Du conflit archaïque au mythe osirien. Pour une lecture socio-politique du mythe dans l'Égypte pharaonique

Two main mythical patterns have invigorated Ancient Egypt society and its literary production, as soon as Pyramid Texts appeared: the archaic myth of Horus and Seth, born during the Early Dynastic times, and the Osirian myth, which spread out quickly through the whole land from the Vth Dynasty on. The first one, the originally historiographical aim of which is to explain how the Pharaonic State was born and why Egypt was a dual entity, has been used as a model for juridical practice, administration and management. The second one, through establishing the institutional rules for...

Isotopic Evidence for Early Trade in Animals between Old Kingdom Egypt and Canaan

Isotope data from a sacrificial ass and several ovicaprines (sheep/goat) from Early Bronze Age household deposits at Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel provide direct evidence for the movement of domestic draught/draft and husbandry animals between Old Kingdom Egypt (during the time of the Pyramids) and Early Bronze Age III Canaan (ca. 2900–2500 BCE). Vacillat-ing, bi-directional connections between Egypt and Canaan are known throughout the Early Bronze Age, but here we provide the first concrete evidence of early trade in animals from Egypt to Canaan.

Grain, storage, and state making in Mesopotamia (3200–2000 BC)

In this chapter, I draw particular attention to grain storage and its pivotal role in the rhetoric and the logistics of state making in Mesopotamia. Grain storage facilities were positioned—both physically and symbolically—at the very heart of the redistributive economy and at the very heart of the state apparatus in Mesopotamia. Grain storage, therefore, offers a unique vantage point from which to examine not only the nature of state power but also the process of state making. The earliest Mesopotamian states did not simply appear, fully formed and destined for total domination. They were...

Beyond information policy: Conflicting documentation ideals in extra-academic knowledge making practices

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore and explicate documentation ideals parallel to information policy, and by means of this analysis demonstrate how the concept "documentation ideals" is an analytical tool for engaging with political and institutional contexts of information practices. Design/methodology/approach – The paper is based on a case study of documentation ideals in a debate about quality in archaeological documentation. The methodology draws on idea analysis, and on the science and technology studies' controversy studies approach. Findings – The paper explicates...
