Egypt & Near East

Ippolito Rosellini and the Dawn of Egyptology
One of the pioneers of modern Egyptology, and among the first to benefit from the deciphering of the hieroglyphic language, Ippolito Rosellini is celebrated in this volume. It accompanies an exhibition of 50 of his most significant drawings, manuscripts and letters, drawn from the collections of Pisa University Library.
Nubian Voices
The book is a collection of articles dealing with various aspects of medieval Nubian literacy. It contains eleven articles by an international group of scholars, representing different areas of language studies (Greek and Latin epigraphy, Coptology, Old Nubian studies).
Chronological Systems of Christian Nubia
It has long been known that Christian Nubia used several dating methods, yet only one of them, the lunar calendar, drew scholars' more detailed attention. The present book is the first comprehensive analysis of all attestations of counting time in medieval Nubia known to date.
Coptic Culture
In May 2008, the Coptic Orthodox Centre in Stevenage, UK organised a conference on Coptic Culture: Past, Present, and Future. The conference aimed to highlight the contributions and achievements of one of the most obscure periods of Egyptian history: the Coptic Period.
The Cemetery of Meir
The tomb of Pepyankh-the Middle is completely preserved, containing valuable information on various aspects of the Egyptian provincial administration and on daily life in the Sixth Dynasty. Both burial shafts of the tomb owner and his wife end in beautifully decorated and extremely well preserved burial chambers.
