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.

THE TOMBS OF ASASIF: ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPLORATION IN THE 2013/2014 SEASON

In the 2013/2014 season, a Polish team from the University of Wrocław started work in the northern part of the Asasif necropolis, near the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari. An archaeological survey was carried out on the Asasif slope. Cleaning work and documentation were undertaken of the architecture of four private tombs: MMA 509/TT 312, MMA 512, MMA 513/TT 314 and MMA 514, as well as the archaeological finds thereof. The rock-cut tombs belong to a Middle Kingdom necropolis and were all reused in later times, especially in the Third Intermediate Period and Late Period.

Entanglement, the Amorite koiné, and Amorite Cultures in the Levant

After more than a century of scholarship on Amorites no real consensus has emerged on their origins, identity, and cultural legacy. It remains the case that little dialogue occurs across geocultural zones or between scholars working on different historical periods. Furthermore, few efforts have been made to incorporate anthropological approaches, despite the fact that more than thirty years ago Kamp and Yoffee (1980) noted its conspicuous absence among prior methods. The only consensus that exists, therefore, is that there is no consensus, and many have resolved that the issue is...

Comparing the Ptolemaic and Seleucid Empires. The Role of Local Elites and Populations. Conference in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, June 30-July 2, 2016

The Ptolemaic and Seleucid empires are usually studied separately, or otherwise included into broader studies of the Hellenistic World. The present conference proposes a more systematic comparison of the roles of local elites and local populations in the construction, negotiation, and adaptation of political, economic, military and ideological power of these multi-ethnic empires. They are sufficiently similar to make comparisons valid, while in the process of comparing them differences should become more sali- ent and better explained. Regions that were successively included in the...

Egypt in the East: The Egyptian Presence in the Negev and the Local Society during the Early Iron Age. Cahiers Caribéens d'Egyptologie 9 (2006), 75-93.

During the Early Iron Age (ca. 1200-1000 BC), New Kingdom Egypt maintained an active presence in the Negev area. Egyptian interest in the region was focused on two main factors: firstly, Negev's pivotal geographic position between Egypt and the lands farther north of Palestine, Syria, and beyond; secondly, the exploitation of the copper mines of the southern Arabah valley, particularly Timna. Egyptian texts of that time speak about the shasu peoples, seminomadic pastoral groups living in the Negev and southern Jordan, with whom the Egyptians usually adopted a militaristic approach, although...

Supra-regional trade networks and the economic potential of Iron Age II sites in the southern Levant

Palaeoclimate proxy data from different locations in Israel indicate relatively dry conditions with environmental collapse at the end of the Bronze Age and during the subsequent Iron Age. The historical and archaeological evidence, however, supports the existence of a flourishing economy in the Levant and involvement in supraregional trade networks, which were heavily based on agricultural production. Local environmental data may help to clarify how these seemingly contradictory patterns can be explained. We investigate Iron Age II plant remains from Tel Burna for their stable carbon...

« Images of Power, Powerful Images : Depicting the King in Ancient Egypt », in M. Vandenbeusch, A. Semat, M. Maitland, Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt, exhibition catalogue Cleveland, Cleveland Museum of Art (13.03. - 12.06.2016), New Haven, 2016, p. 24-31.

Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt introduces readers to three thousand years of Egypt's ancient history by unveiling its famous leaders—the pharaohs—using some of the finest objects from the vast holdings of the British Museum. In an introductory essay, Margaret Maitland looks at Egyptian kingship in terms of both ideology and practicality. Then Aude Semat considers the Egyptian image of kingship, its roles and its uses. In ten additional sections, Marie Vandenbeusch delves into themes related to the land of ancient Egypt, conceptions of kingship, the exercise of power, royal daily life, and...
