The Valley of the Kings Site Management Masterplan
Theban Mapping Project, Cairo, Egypt
The Valley of the Kings (Wadi Biban el Mouluk) on the West Bank of the Nile in Luxor, in the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a World Heritage site whose archaeological fame and economic importance as a tourist destination are internationally recognized. The result of its popularity has been a massive increase in visitor numbers over  the last decade, now often exceeding 7,000 visitors every day. This number is guaranteed to increase in future years. Without carefully prepared site manegement plans, the  very existence of this fragile resource could be seriously threatened. In the spring of 2004, the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) requested  that the Theban Mapping Project (TMP) prepare a masterplan for the future management of the Valley. This project was generously supported by the World Monuments Fund (WMF), and the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), and several private donors. What follows is the main text of that management plan.

Boat-building and its social context in early Egypt: interpretations from the First Dynasty boat-grave cemetery at Abydos

Cheryl Ward

Published in: Antiquity. Vol. 80, págs. 118-129 (2006) - .pdf: 250 KB
"The boat-grave cemetery at Abydos has provided the world’s oldest sewn planked hulls, and vivid evidence for the way early Egyptian wooden boats were built. As well as sailing on the Nile, they were designed to be dismantled for carriage over land to the Red Sea. By the mid-fourth millennium BC the ship was a major technical force in the Egyptian political economy as well as an iconic force in ceremonial burial."

The Ethics and Economics of Ptolemaic Religious Associations

Andrew Monson

November 2005

Pdf, 111 Kb. 
"This paper considers the economic status of the members in Ptolemaic religious associations and offers a model to explain why they participated.  Drawing on Charles Tilly's comparative study of trust networks, I suggest  that religious associations institutionalized informal ethical norms into formal rules that lowered the costs of transacting and facilitated  cooperation among villagers. The rules related to legal disputes illustrate how associations exercised this power and even tried to prevent the Ptolemaic state from intruding in their network " 

Abundance in the Margins: Multiplicity of Script in the Demotic Magical Papyri

Jacco Dieleman

Seth L. Sanders (ed.), Margins of Writing, Origins of Cultures, The Oriental Institute of the University of  Chicago, Illinois, 2006 (Oriental Institute Seminars, No. 2), pp. 67-81

Pdf-file (Todo el libro 6.3 MB) 
"This paper will focus on the _Demotic Magical Papyri_, a corpus of  bilingual magical spells preserved on four manuscripts dated to the  second-third century CE. These spells, written in Egyptian (Demotic and  Old-Coptic) and Greek, make use of seven scripts, two of which are a cipher  script ... could the adaptation of multiple scripts be interpreted as a  conscious attempt on the part of the composers and readers of the texts to  construct a layered cultural identity meaningful in, and suitable for, the  pluralistic Hellenistic world?" 

Les rayons Röntgen et les momies

"Since 1988 the Giza Plateau Mapping Project has been carrying out  excavations at Giza along the base of the Maadi Formation escarpment  known locally as Gebel el-Qibli (Southern Mount), about 400 m  south of the Sphinx. The goal is to find evidence of the social and  economic structures that supported the building and maintenance  of the Giza Pyramids and the surrounding tombs and temples. The  project has undertaken 21 months of excavation during a marathon  season from Fall 1999 until June 2002, and a total of 35 months  of excavation since the beginning of excavations in 1988. The  purpose of this article is to provide an overview of what this  program has discovered: a major urban layout of the Third  Millennium B.C. ..."

The Eighth Season of Excavations in the Early Dynastic Cemetery at Helwan
"The Helwan team has enjoyed a very successful season of excavations between November 2004 and February 2005 ... During the course of the season another 21 tomb structures were uncovered ... These tombs date between Dynasty 1 and Dynasty 4 and range in size and architecture. Most of them are simple pit burials of presumably relatively poor individuals, which were nevertheless very well preserved and thus allowed for detailed and valuable insights into the burial customs of the lower classes of early Memphite society."

Ancient Egypt Provides an Early Example of How A Society's Worldview Drives Engineering and the Development of Science

Blake L. White

The Strategic Technology Institute, 2003.

Online paper in PDF (97 kB):
"An examination of Egyptian engineering and science, principally during the OK and MK, shows that religion drove the development of, and was reflected by, their monumental architecture. These architectural wonders served as a societal organizing principle and demonstrated the power of the state (..).  In addition, the supporting sciences, such as mathematics, astronomy, geography, and medicine all had practical purposes in support of the Egyptian religious worldview."

Temple of Khonsu, vol. 3: The Graffiti on the Khonsu Temple Roof at Karnak: A Manifestation of Personal Piety

Helen Jacquet-Gordon

The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, 2003
(Oriental Institute Publications, Number 123).

xxiv, 119 pp., 126 pls. - pdf-file (40 MB)
"Graffiti incised on the roof blocks of the temple of Khonsu at Karnak, written in the hieroglyphic, hieratic, and Demotic scripts and accompanied by the outlines of pairs of feet, caught the eye of Champollion and other early voyagers who succeeded in clambering up onto that part of the roof still remaining over the colonnade of the first court. Such graffiti have usually been interpreted as mementos left by ancient visitors passing through Thebes. A complete survey of all the graffiti on the roof and a detailed  study of the inscriptions, carried out over a considerable period of time, has revealed the unexpected fact that far from being casual tourists, it was mostly the priestly personnel of the temple itself whose  graffiti have been preserved there ... The 334 graffiti recorded in the  volume are richly illustrated by photographs and facsimile drawings. Transliterations, translations, line notes, and commentaries are provided. The text concludes with general, name, epithet, and title indices."


Recent discoveries in West Sakkara

Polish Egyptian Archaeological Mission at Sakkara

During the reign of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, ca. 305-30 B.C., large stone statues of the greatest Greek poets and philosophers were placed on that semicircular podium. Although they look like a show-case of Greek civilisation, they do not attract the attention of tourists, who rush among tombs of pharaohs and those of holy bulls, dating from earlier times.

The legal rights of the women of ancient Egypt

Andriette Ferreira

University of South Africa, 2004. viii, 117 pp.
"The legal rights of the women of ancient Egypt are discussed in this dissertation. All the different aspects of the legal system were examined in order to conclude whether the ancient Egyptian women indeed had legal rights. An inquiry was therefore conducted into the Egyptian Family Law, the Law of Succession, Property Law, Law of Contract and Criminal Law. The modern classification of the law was used, seeing that no evidence exists to provide us with the ancient Egyptians' classification method."

Last Writing: Script Obsolescence in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Mesoamerica, in: Comparative Studies in Society and History

Stephen Houston, John Baines, Jerrold Cooper, 

vol. 45, pp. 430-479 (2003) - pdf-file (536 KB)
"The invention of writing is thought, with good justification, to undergird and enable present-day society. In its more developed forms, it is indispensable to bureaucracy, propaganda, and administration. However, the comparative literature on writing systems takes little notice of unraveling script traditions, the phases of terminal use when forms of writing passed  into extinction. Today, Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, Mesopotamian cuneiform, and Mayan glyphs, the scripts under review here, persist only in the sense that  modern specialists teach them in academic settings or artisans incorporate them into trinkets and tourist art." See also for the hieroglyphic writing system: Heike Sternberg-el-Hotabi, Der  Untergang der Hieroglyphenschrift. Schriftverfall und Schrifttod im Ägypten der griechisch-römischen Zeit, in; CdE, vol. 69, pp. 218-248 (1994).

The syntax and semantics of the Coptic cleft constructions, University of Sussex Working Papers in Linguistics and English Language
Reintges, Chris
15 pp., pdf-file
"Cleft constructions are very common in the syntactic patterns of Coptic Egyptian used to indicate the focal status of nominal arguments. Clefts sentences are complex sentences structures that express a single proposition by means of a biclausal syntax. In Coptic, cleft constructions represent a special type of tripartite nominal sentences in which a noun phrase (or its equivalent) is equated with a restrictive relative clause. Nominal clefts  encode different semantic types of focus, ranging from presentational (new information) focus to explicit contrast".
