Climate, settlement patterns and olive horticulture in the southern Levant during the Early Bronze and Intermediate Bronze Ages (c. 3600–1950 BC)

We report results of palynological investigation of a core of sediments extracted from the bottom of the Sea of Galilee. The core was sampled at high resolution for both palynological analysis (a sample was taken c. every 40 years) and radiocarbon dating. The article focuses on the Early Bronze and Intermediate Bronze Ages, c. 3600–1950 BC. The results enable reconstruction of the vegetation and thus climate in the lake's fluvial and alluvial catchment, which includes large parts of northern Israel and Lebanon and southwestern Syria. The study sheds light on topics such as changes in olive...

D. Sweeney, "Gender and Requests in New Kingdom Literature," in: C. Graves-Brown (ed.), Sex and Gender in Ancient Egypt "Don Your Wig for A Joyful Hour", Swansea, 19-20 December 2005, Swansea, 2008, 191–213.

This article discusses the interaction of gender and language in various situations in ancient Egyptian literary texts from the late 15th to early 11th century BCE. (The Report of Wenamun may have been written later). Status, age and social setting are also taken into consideration. In these texts, both female and male characters are depicted as succeeing in getting about two-thirds of their requests answered. Women are actually more successful, with a 70% success rate, as opposed to men's success rate of 61%. 27% of the male characters and 33% of the female characters are represented...

Painting on Linen Cloth in Antiquity: Shrouds from Roman Egypt as a Source for Research

Pictorial art during the Roman period is a field that has been amply studied, and is generally divided according to the material employed. This article shows that paintings on linen are a form of artistic expression that is well documented in antiquity, and that they represent a primary source for the study of the work done by painters who specialized in funerary art. The best preserved and largest surviving ancient collection of paintings on cloth comes from Egypt. It is a practice that is closely tied to funerary customs, as is documented from prehistoric times, and that reached its...

Three Unusual Stelae from Abydos, The Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 101(2015): 131-152

The three stelae, kept today in different museums (the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (E.SS.40); the British Museum, London (EA 638); and the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago (31275), form a very peculiar and somewhat bizarre group of objects. Indeed, the Field Museum stela was initially even considered a forgery. However, this seems not to be the case: the three stelae share many similarities in terms of style, iconography, epigraphy, as well as size and appearance. These similarities suggest that they were made at approximately the same time and in the same workshop. Their...
