Bárta, M. 2000. The mastaba of Ptahsepses Junior II at Abusir. Egypt and the Levant 10:45-66.

Publication of one of the major mastabas built on the pyramid field of Abusir during the time of Nyuserra or shortly thereafter, ca 2400 BC. This structure belonged to one of the sons of the vizier Ptahshepses, Ptahsepses Junior. He executed, as one of the oldest known officials, the office of the Overseer of Upper Egypt. His mastaba's architecture belongs to a newly established type of monumental elite tomb featuring large open cultic court, east-west oriented chapel and a burial chamber with a central pillar.

Aspects of the Judiciary during the Egyptian Old Kingdom

This paper addresses aspects of the judiciary, focusing on the courts, during the Egyptian Old Kingdom. The proposal that the Egyptian administration during the Old Kingdom was divided into five parts (the treasury, agriculture, royal archives, works and the judiciary) prompts this paper to explore the judicial part of the administration by focusing on the different courts that made up the judicial branch. It will be proposed that the courts that existed formed a hierarchy that Egyptians could appeal to when disputes arose and conflict resolution was required. The evidence for the court...

Shai, et al. 2016. The importance of the donkey as a pack animal in the Early Bronze Age southern Levant: A view from Tell es-Safi/Gath. ZDPV 132: 1-25

In this paper, we review the evidence for the use of the domestic donkey as a mode of transportation in the Early Bronze Age. The study will present the domestic donkey remains (artefactual and zoological) and their archaeological context from the Early Bronze Age III domestic neighborhood at Tell es ˙-S ˙ a ¯fı ¯/ Gath. The remains indicate the significant role that donkeys played in the daily life of the inhabitants. This reflects on our understanding of their role in the trade networks and mode of transportation that existed within the emerging urban cultures in the southern Levant...

Pirates of the Crete-Aegean: Migration, Mobility, and Post-Palatial Realities at the End of the Bronze Age

300-500 words (445 words) Our recent research (Hitchcock and Maeir 2014; in press) has used historical accounts of piracy to briefly examine pirate leadership, pirate culture and social organization, feasting activities, and studies of pirate geography to propose an interpretive framework for understanding the migration of the Sea Peoples as, inter alia, pirate tribes who plundered some of the great centers of the at the end of the Mediterranean Bronze Age (ca. 1177 BCE, e.g. Cline 2014). We suggest that as Mycenaean control over trade routes collapsed with the destruction and/or eventual...

The Lost Loci of Tell El-'Ajjul: Petrie's Area C

Flinders Petrie excavated the site of Tell el-'Ajjul in southern Palestine over five seasons between 1930 and 1938, with publication of his finds following swiftly on the heels of his fieldwork. These reports were only ever meant to be a preliminary investigation into the potential of this rich site, and often raised as many questions as they answered. This material is now the subject of the Petrie Palestinian Project, based at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, which aims to re-evaluate Petrie's finds in the light of more recent research. In the course of this work a...

Yarmukian-Type Architecture without Yarmukian-Type Pottery at the Site of Khirbet 'Asafna (East) in the Jezreel Valley, Israel: A Dilemma?

Salvage excavations conducted in 2013 on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority at Khirbet 'Asafna (east) revealed structural remains related to the Yarmukian aspect of the Pottery Neolithic culture and possibly to the early Pre-Pottery Neolithic B culture as well. The site, situated next to a natural spring, is located near the confluence of the Jezreel and Zevulun Valleys opposite the Carmel mountain range. Large segments of stone foundations of at least four rectangular structures were exposed, distinct architectural units that must once have formed part of one, possibly two, Pottery...
