Current Research in Egyptology 2003


The fourth annual Current Research in Egyptology Symposium (CRE 2003) was held on 18-19 January 2003, at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, and brought together graduate students of Egyptology from a range of institutions. In total, 27 papers were presented, 13 of which are published here. These illustrate a range of subject areas and approaches; an underlying theme, though, is apparent; a greater degree of reflexivity and a wider engagement with interdisciplinary research.
