From Amazon.com:The nineteen contributions to this volume approach the subject of Egyptian chronology of the Third Millennium BC from different perspectives: some of them concern the use of modern methods (14C) and natural sciences in Egyptology; others analyze the development of various aspects of the Egyptian culture during the whole period of the Old Kingdom and the First Intermediate Period, or try to specify the date of certain monuments and personalities. A study and interpretation of archaeological as well as textual sources and iconographical material is combined in the papers in order to attain a deeper knowledge and better understanding of the Egyptian chronology, archaeology and history of the Third Millennium BC.

book coverSwimmers in the Sand
On the Neolithic Origins of Ancient Egyptian Mythology and Symbolism

Categories :  Civilization   Myths & Legends  
From the publisher\'s website:The origins of ancient Egyptian civilisation have been attracting the attention of archaeologist ever since the beginnings of Egyptology more than 200 years ago. This book presents a new and original interpretation of the rock art in Egyptian Western Desert which is of a key importance for our understanding of the roots of ancient Egyptian civilisation. Indeed, her very origins can be most likely dated to the 6th millennium B.C. In this time and the centuries to follow the paintings in the Cave of the Swimmers known from a blockbuster English Patient and in the Cave of Beasts discovered only few years ago were created. These caves are located in a distant and hardly accessible part of Egypt, on the border of Egypt, Libya and Sudan. The rock-art preserved in these caves features several unique motifs that will become cornerstone of ancient Egyptian iconography and mythology. Among them may be named the motif of the sky goddess and the earth god, prototypic representation of an ancient chieftain in the much later pharaonic guise or the concept of cave creatures protecting the entrance to the Netherworld. During the Fifth and Fourth millennia B.C. the vast areas of Western Desert suffered from a major depredation of climate that most likely led to a gradual evacuation of the region and instigated appearance of permanent settlements in the Nile valley which led to genesis of ancient Egyptian culture. The present study aims to present a theory according to which at least some parts of the discussed rock art in the Western Desert was created by an ancient mind that later on contributed to the intellectual emergence of ancient Egyptian civilisation in the Nile valley.

book coverArbres et arbustes de l’Égypte ancienne
Nathalie Baum
ISBN 9789068312027
© 2009 Peeters
Categories :  Environment & Geography  
Du site de l\'éditeur:À l\'entrée de la tombe d\'Ineni, l\'un des piliers est décoré d\'une représentation du domaine de ce notable. Le texte qui en décrit le jardin est complété d\'un tableau divisé en 20 quadrats, refermant chacun un nom d\'arbre suivi du nombre de spécimens observés. Témoignage unique sur la végétation de la région thébaine au Nouvel Empire, cette \'liste\' apparaît comme une énumération décousue de plantes devant permettre au défunt d\'emporter dans l\'au-delà l\'image d\'une exploitation agricole prospère, mais il se pourrait que, poursuivant un dessein plus ambitieux, le propriétaire de la tombe 81 l\'ait élaborée selon une conception précise de sa survie et qu\'elle forme un groupement cohérent tant sur le plan floristique que religieux. Pour tenter de répondre à cette question en se fondant sur les données de la botanique et de l\'égyptologie, l\'ouvrage analyse le document sous deux angles différents: les éléments de la liste sont d\'abord considérés tels qu\'Ineni les a répertoriés, puis examinés dans les combinaisons opérées par les Egyptiens au cours de leur histoire. L\'auteur propose une nouvelle interprétation de l\'inscription, dont la traduction s\'enrichit des identifications de ksbt et im3.
