The title of this workshop has a question mark. This question mark has proven to be justified, for I have not succeeded in finding clear evidence of masks in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. This, of course, does not mean that there were no masks in ancient Israel/Palestine, since we now have archaeological evidence of many things that are not mentioned in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. Masks (and protomes) of all sizes are well-documented in Israel/Palestine until the Roman Period. When the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible does not speak of something for which there is clear archaeological...

Herihor is often relegated to the sidelines of historical narrative. Where considered at all he is frequently seen as a pretender to royal prerogative, a high priest assuming the trappings of kingship.

This book examines such views by re-evaluating the art and iconography of Herihor within the contexts of both the wider ritual landscape and the political ideology of his time. As a result, new perspectives are presented both on the nature of Herihor's reign, and on ancient Egyptian...

J. Müller/V. P. J. Arponen/R. Hofmann/R. Ohlrau, The Appearance of Social Inequalities: Cases of Neolithic and Chalcolithic Societies. Origini 38 2015-2, 2017, 65-86. By using a new methodological approach, which is based on the reconstruction of social roles of households by comparing architecture and inventories, the origin of social inequality is detected in a Neolithic village. In contrast the identification of manifold social identities in a Chalcolthic maega-site (including social inequalities) describes other forms of social control.

Copious and unequivocal evidence of legally condoned and socially favored brother-sister and parent-child marriage among common people from Roman Egypt (first to third centuries, A.D.) and Zoroastrian Iran (fifth century, B.C. to 11th century, A.D.) can be taken to pose a challenge to the sociobiological case for universal evolved incest avoidance within the nuclear family, triggered by early childhood proximity (the Westermarck effect). Official census documents from Roman Egypt show a high incidence of full sibling unions with relatively small age gaps between the spouses and no...
