A Torso from the Gayer-Anderson Museum, Cairo 1

The Egyptian collection in the Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bait al-Kritliya), Cairo is small, as Major Gayer-Anderson gave or sold most of his pharaonic pieces to museums throughout the world. 2 However, a group of objects of varying degrees of artistic merit remain in his Cairo collection, which is located in two Ottoman houses attached to the mosque of Ibn Tulun. The subject of this article is one of these, a brownish-orange quartzite torso of a woman. The female torso in quartzite comes from a two-thirds life-size seated figure. It measures 34.5 cm high and 33.4 cm at its widest point. The...

M. Bárta, Temporary and Permanent. Status Race and the Mechanism of Change in a Complex Civilisation: Ancient Egypt in between 2900 and 2120 BC,

in Cunningham, Tim and Jan Driessen 2017 Crisis to collapse : the archaeology of social breakdown. Aegis Actes de colloques. UCL, Presses universitaires de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, pp. 278-93. What the contemporary archaeology of historical periods in Egypt seems to confront on a daily basis is above all a very simple observation: that on a particular site, things remain 'the same' for a long period of time and then, after this period of rather uneventful development, they rapidly change. The whole social-political system is exposed to a series of vital changes that inluence basically...

(2015, with E. Kuciewicz & M. Kobusiewicz) Dakhleh Oasis Project, Petroglyph Unit: Seasons 2012 and 2013

In the 2012 and 2013 seasons the Petroglyph Unit concentrated on two major assignments: first, recording rock art sites in the Central Oasis, in the area of the so-called Painted Wadi and in adjoining areas, either unexplored or only partly explored earlier, and second, locating again and documenting Winkler's sites 66 and 67, both in the eastern part of the Oasis. These two sites are of mostly homogeneous, Neolithic origin, while rock art recorded in the Central Oasis dates from the Neolithic through very recent times.

(2014, with E. Kuciewicz & M. Kobusiewicz) Dakhleh Oasis Project, Petroglyph Unit: rock art research 2011

Research by the Petroglyph Unit in the 2011 season was concentrated on recording two sites. One was site 6/09 in the Central Oasis, a multicultural site unusually rich in rock panels bearing an abundance of representations of ostriches and of the sandal/foot motif. The other one was Winkler's site 62 in the Eastern Oasis, mainly of prehistoric provenance, with an exeptional panel depicting seven artful images of anthropomorphic figures.

The Dreams of Blind Men and Women: A Replication and Extension of Previous Findings

Drawing on a sample of 372 dreams from 15 blind adults, we present two separate analyses that replicate and extend findings from previous studies. The first analysis employed DreamSearch, a software program designed for use with dream narratives, to examine the appearance of the five sensory modalities. It revealed that those blind since birth or very early childhood had (1) no visual imagery and (2) a very high percentage of gustatory, olfactory, and tactual sensory references. The second analysis found that both male and female participants differed from their sighted counterparts in the...

Jesus Man Messenger Messiah by Abu Zakariya

Nearly two billion Christians and over 1.5 billion Muslims believe in him, yet Jesus is perhaps the most misunderstood and misrepresented person in history. This book explores and demystifies Jesus – his life, teachings, personality and mission. It highlights commonalities but also examines differences between Christianity and Islam. This book explains where and how the Qur'an challenges the traditional Church narrative.In doing so, it presents the reader with a compelling and clear understanding of Jesus and his true message. The book also demonstrates why the Qur'an is the 'missing...
