Behind Closed Eyes: Dreams and Nightmares in Ancient Egypt

This new book is the first to present a comprehensive study of dreams as they were perceived and interpreted by the Egyptians in the third and second millennia BC, from the Old Kingdom to the New Kingdom. The author examines the various roles dreams could play in ancient Egyptian society, whether political, religious, magical, or literary. She also considers the value of dream-interpretation for the happiness of private individuals. The work is accessibly written, and should inform the wider study of psychology and comparative religion. Its arguments are based on an intimate study of the...

Health and Medicine in Ancient Egypt: Magic and Science

Health was a constant concern in life and even the deceased needed extra care so that they would be at their prime when enclosed in the sarcophagus; and in the possession of magical 'weapons' so that when they reached the Afterlife, they would be in complete possession of all their physical abilities. Medicine in ancient Egypt was trying to restrain all malefic beings from action and to preserve the well-being of the individual. Through this work, all descriptions and conceptions observed in the existing legacy of ancient Egypt will lead to conclusions that attest this unique duality: its...

"Identity, Commemoration and Remembrance in Colonial Encounters: Burials at Tombos during the Egyptian New Kingdom Nubian Empire and its Aftermath." In Porter and Boutin (eds.), Remembering the Dead in the Ancient Near East

Burial practice provides a critical arena for the negotiation of identities in colonial encounters through different acts of commemoration made by individuals. Ancient Egyptian burial practice in particular emphasized remembrances of ancestors through decorated tomb chapels and grave goods. Initially evoking Egyptian primordial ties, changes in burial practice at Tombos, an Egyptian colonial community in Sudanese Nubia founded in c. 1400 BC, eventually led to the emergence of a new, entangled identity incorporating both Egyptian and Nubian practices in the empire's aftermath. By the Napatan...

The Origins and Use of the Potter's Wheel in Ancient Egypt

The invention of the wheel is often highlighted as one of humankinds' most significant inventions. Wheels do not exist in nature, and so can be viewed entirely as a human-inspired invention. Machinery too, was relatively rare in the ancient world. The potter's wheel is arguably the most significant machine introduced into Egypt, second only perhaps to the drill, the loom and the bellows for smelting metal. In Predynastic Egypt (c3500 B.C.), the traditional methods of hand-building pottery vessels were already successful in producing pottery vessels of high quality on a large scale for the...
