The mission 'Osirian Sanctuaries at Karnak' (IFAO, CFEETK, EPHE, HiSoMA, Orient & Mediterranée, INRAP) aims at a systematic recording of epigraphic material from the monuments dedicated to Osiris at Karnak and an in-depth study of the development of his cult in this area. Over the past few years, besides excavations carried out in the northern part of Karnak, an epigraphic survey has been undertaken in seven chapels (Osiris Wennefer Neb-djefau, Osiris 'Neb-neheh', Osiris Neb-ankh/pa-wesheb-iad, Osiris of Coptos, Osiris Hery-ib-pa-ished, Osiris wep-ished, and Osiris-Ptah Neb-ankh), the...

By focusing on archaeological data collected by Ernest Mackay in the early 20th century, this article proposes a revised reconstruction for the satellite pyramid of Meidum. This correction is followed by a discussion of who was responsible for constructing the main Meidum pyramid, and provides an opportunity to place all of the subsidiary pyramids within the giant tomb building program of Snefru, for the first time. The result is a comprehensive reassessment of the sequence of construction phases for the funerary sites of this pharaoh.

These objects were probably buried next to the deceased, to guarantee everlasting mourning.

The mid- second millennium BC was a period of unprecedented contact between Egypt and the Aegean. It was long thought that most of the contact between these two regions was indirect and largely controlled by Cypriote and Levantine middlemen. Recent discover-ies (for example, the Minoan- style frescoes at Tell el- Dab'a and new interpretations of known material (such as the new reconstruction of the Gurob ship- cart model or the identification of Mycenaeans on a pictorial papyrus from Tell el- 'Amarna have made this scenario increasingly tenuous; and evidence suggests that there was, in...

The Archaeology of Imperial Landscapes examines the transformation of rural landscapes and societies that formed the backbone of ancient empires in the Near East and Mediterranean. Through a comparative approach to archaeological data, it analyses the patterns of transformation in widely differing imperial contexts in the ancient world. Bringing together a range of studies by an international team of scholars, the volume shows that empires were dynamic, diverse, and experimental polities, and that their success or failure was determined by a combination of forceful interventions, as well as...
