'Quarrying and landscape at Gebel el-Asr in the Old and Middle Kingdoms', Recent Discoveries and Latest Researches in Egyptology: Proceedings of the First Neapolitan Congress of Egyptology, Naples, June 18th-20th 2008, ed. F. Raffaele, M. Nuzzollo, and I. Incordino (Wiesbaden: Otto Harrassowitz, 2010), 293-312.

This paper presents a short summary of some of the results of a British-Norwegian- Egyptian geoarchaeological expedition to the Gebel el-Asr anorthosite gneiss quarries and chalcedony mines. The site is frequently referred to elsewhere as the 'Chephren diorite quarries' since it has long been recognized as the source of the blue-grey banded metamorphic rock from which six life-size seated statues of the 4th-Dynasty pharaoh Chephren (2520-2494 BC) were carved.

Memphis, Minos, and Mycenae: Bronze Age contact between Egypt and the Aegean

Before 3000 BC, when there was no unified Egyptian state that controlled the entirety of the Nile Valley, the various communities along the shores of the Nile were already trading with each other and with people further afield. Close ties with communities in Canaan, and through these with regions further to the north, are evident from the numerous Sumerian- and Elamite- inspired elements in Late Predynastic and Early Dynastic ruler iconography. From Dynasty 6 (ca. 2345–2181 BC) onward, Egyptian texts speak of "Byblos ships," an indication of the growing importance of maritime trade,...

"Lass deinen Namen hervorkommen" – Zur Appropriation von Einzelmotiven der Grabdekoration in Sakkara

The case study deals with the large mastabas of Kagemni and Mereruka at the Teti Cemetery in Saqqara and analysis appropriation of a large number of minor figures.

Rise of the Hyksos. Egypt and Levant from the Middle Kingdom to the Early Second Intermediate Period

The monograph investigates how Egyptian-Levantine contact from the Middle Kingdom to the early Second Intermediate Period influenced and effected the rise of the Hyksos. Utilising theories on ethnicity and cultural mixing, it examines the changing nature of Egyptian-Levantine relations, and reassesses the Egyptian concept of the other. The approach is holistic, gathering archaeological, textual and artistic evidence from sites across three regions: Egypt; the Eastern Desert; and the Levant. This method is proven to be well-suited in shedding new light on the origins of the enigmatic Hyksos,...
