The volume covers thousands of years of Mediterranean, Egyptian, and Nubian history, archaeology, religious history, and art history from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages. As a clear reflection to the Jubilant’s scholarly interest, the bulk of the published papers are centered around Egyptian, Nubian, and late antique studies, besides which contributions on prehistoric Europe, the ancient Near East, and the Roman world are also included. A separate chapter is dedicated to the early modern and modern European reception of the Ancient world. Besides larger syntheses and overviews, a rich array of new excavation results and re-evaluations of famous sites and finds are offered to the reader. All these studies provide new insights into the vibrant and colorful lives of past societies and contribute to a better understanding of the ancient and late antique world of the Mediterranean and its wider environment.

The first volume of the book focuses on Ancient Egypt, Ancient Nubia, prehistoric Europe, the ancient Near East, and the Roman world, whie the second volume discusses Late Antique Nubia, the Byzantine world in Egypt, and the ancient world in modern Europe.
