This article presents the role of climate fluctuations in shaping southern Levantine human history from 3600 to 600 BCE (the Bronze and Iron Ages) as evidenced in palynological studies. This time interval is critical in the history of the region; it includes two phases of rise and decline of urban life, organization of the first territorial kingdoms, and domination of the area by great Ancient Near Eastern empires. The study is based on a comparison of several fossil pollen records that span a north-south transect of 220 km along the southern Levant: Birkat Ram in the northern Golan...

Around 2010, following the Cairo DNA study and its publication, 1 French Egyptologist, Marc Gabolde, wrote a paper interpreting the data. This paper, as far as I can tell, underwent some revisions over time. It can be viewed online here: http://www.enim-egyptologie.fr/revue/2013/10/Gabolde_ENIM6_p177-203.pdf Gabolde concludes that he would prefer to view the KV35Younger Lady and the male found in KV55 as sharing a cousin relationship rather than that of a brother and a sister. In brief, if I interpret his French language arguments correctly, the rationale behind his theory is that, because...

The period of Late Antiquity has long been perceived, and is still often perceived, through the lens of (Christian) literary works, which tell dramatic stories of violence against temples, statues and even 'pagans', and may give theimpression that this was a period of widespread religious violence. Egypt, where such stories abound, has often been seen as a particularly good illustration of the pervasive nature of religious violence in the Late Antique world. This article takes a different view. By adopting a theoretical framework on religious violence from Religious Studies and including...

Although scientific excavation has been conducted in Egypt since Petrie's time, many Western developments in archaeological theory and practice are yet to be adopted by the majority of current fieldworkers. The reasons for this are manifold, but stem from the way Egyptology is taught in universities. Many excavators still use the Wheeler-Kenyon box-grid technique, excavating in spits, and identifying layers and features through the baulk sections. Single context recording (SCR), by contrast, is now starting to be used in Egypt. The effectiveness of this methodology, its advantages over...
