Volcanic suppression of Nile summer flooding triggers revolt and constrains interstate conflict in ancient Egypt

Volcanic eruptions provide tests of human and natural system sensitivity to abrupt shocks because their repeated occurrence allows the identification of systematic relationships in the presence of random variability. Here we show a suppression of Nile summer flooding via the radiative and dynamical impacts of explosive volcanism on the African monsoon, using climate model output, ice-core-based volcanic forcing data, Nilometer measurements, and ancient Egyptian writings. We then examine the response of Ptolemaic Egypt (305–30 BCE), one of the best-documented ancient superpowers, to...

Refuse dump in sector B in Naqlun: excavation report 2011, Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean 23.1 (Research 2011), 2015: 170-181

In excavation season 2011 works were carried out at the monastic refuse dump in sector B of the site. The deposits, dated to the 6th–7th centuries, were cut by a trench for a later, subterranean mud-brick structure. The intact strata yielded an extensive array of finds, including papyri, mud-stoppers, terracotta lamps and miscellaneous objects of leather, wood, glass, etc.

Linseele, V., Zerboni, A. (in press). Done with fish? A diachronic study of fishing in the Holocene Nile basin of Sudan. Quaternany International.

The Nile valley of northern and mainly Central Sudan is renowned for its Early and Middle Holocene archaeological sites, with plentiful remains of fish and other aquatic fauna. However, at younger sites, after the Neolithic (after ca. 3500/3000 cal BC), fish bones are not found in any significant numbers. A lack of fishing near a large water basin seems counter-intuitive. In this paper we investigate whether fish consumption really lost importance in Sudan through time, based on a synthesis of the available archaeozoological data, and referring also to modern fisheries data for the region....

Linseele, V., Holdaway, S. J., Wendrich, W. (2016). The earliest phase of introduction of Southwest Asian domesticated animals into Africa. New evidence from the Fayum Oasis in Egypt and its implications. Quaternary International 412, 11-21.

The oldest records for Southwest Asian domesticated livestock species in Egypt date to the late 7th but mainly the 6th millennium cal BC and are among the earliest known evidence from the African continent as a whole. The records were obtained from Egypt's Eastern and Western Desert, where only cattle and caprines are present, and are not associated with evidence for cultivated crops. It takes until the 5th millennium cal BC before significant numbers of sites, with significant numbers of bones of domesticated species appear. In the Fayum Oasis, the sites of Kom K and Kom W date to this...

Faces within Faces. The symbolic function of nested yellow coffins in Ramesside Egypt

This is not published book, but a PhD dissertation, submitted at the University of Oslo in December 2012. It focuses on the layered structure of Ancient Egyptian mummies and coffin ensembles in the Ramesside period, and provide the source material for later papers on the same topic. The nested structure, which often has been compared with Russian dolls or Chinese boxes, is very characteristic for Egyptian elite burials. The core of the source material consists of 10 private coffin ensembles from the late 18th to the early 21st Dynasties. These objects have been studied in light of...
