Fortunes and Misfortunes of Messengers and Merchants in the Amarna Letters. In: O. Drewnowska- M. Sandowicz (eds.). 2017. Fortune and Misfortune in the Ancient Near East. Proceedings of the 60th Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale, Warsaw 21–25 July 2014. Winona Lake: Eisenbrauns, pp. 143-164.

"Ḥwt jḥ(w)t, the administration of the Western Delta and the 'Libyan question' in the third millennium BC", The Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 101 (2015), 25-61.

Third millennium Ḥwt jḥ(w)t is a locality that stands apart from other Lower Egyptian sites. Its unique archaeological and epigraphic record provides an invaluable view of the role played by a Delta centre within the administrative and productive organisation of the kingdom in the third millennium BC. It thus appears that Ḥwt jḥ(w)t was a kind of checkpoint regulating access to grazing land and plant resources in the underpopulated Western Delta. Furthermore, this was a region where Libyan populations historically settled and exploited its pasture land. Finally, traces of exchange networks...

The miraculous rise of the Fifth Dynasty – The story of Papyrus Westcar and historical evidence (by Miroslav Verner)

The decline of the powerful Fourth Dynasty and the rise of a new royal line, the Fifth Dynasty, have for a long time been shrouded in mystery and have become the stuff of legends. These events are referred to in the tale of the miraculous rise of the first three kings of the Fifth Dynasty, recorded on the Papyrus Westcar. However, relevant historical sources relating to the ascension of the new dynasty have for a long time been only few and ambiguous. The mystery surrounding the ascension of the Fifth Dynasty has now been altered fundamentally by new archaeological discoveries, in...
