Dating late XIXth Dynasty ostraca by Mark Collier( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Valley of the Kings and the environs of the town-site of Deir el-Medina comes the most extensive body of documentation available for the study of a single ancient Egyptian community, illuminating the life-world of the workmen who carved out and decorated the royal tombs of the New Kingdom pharaohs as well as the workmen's families and those who supported and administered them. Dating this material precisely is a tricky business, since most of the documents, particularly ostraca (limestone flakes or potsherds), lack specific regnal year dates (the standard dating system for ancient Egyptian documents) and few specify the reign of a particular king even when the regnal year date is present. Dating thus relies on a comparative methodology utilising prosopographical information on the workmen themselves. Drawing inspiration from the pioneering work of Jac J. Janssen, this volume attempts to provide comparative datings for 78 ostraca (and papyri) from the late XIXth Dynasty. The method draws explicitly on the division of the gang into two sides and, crucially, makes full use (for the first time) of the specific ordering of workmen's names to be found in documentation from this period. A key document is O. Ashm. HO 57, which provides the single most comprehensive, and ordered, listing of the workgang during this period and which can be compared fruitfully with the fragmentary day-watch record from P. Greg. Datings are then suggested for all the documents dealt with in this volume and the basis for further elucidation of the careers of various workmen is provided, either by showing that the same individual lurks behind different versions of the same name, by limiting how many workmen share the same name, by tracking the transfer of workmen between the two sides of the gang, or by narrowing down their first attested appearance of a workman on the gang. The archaeological context of the important body of late XIXth Dynasty material from the Valley of the Kings is investigated and it is shown that the datings proposed here on comparative grounds correlate strongly with the grouping of the ostraca by excavation and find-site. More speculative work investigates the reconstruction of the day-watch rota for this period and tests this against the limited textual data currently available. The work is supported by a comprehensive index of the workmen by source and a concordance comparing the datings suggested here with those from other standard reference resources. Many of the ostraca dealt with in this book can also now be accessed via and cross-checked with the on-line Deir el-Medina database currently being developed at the University of Leiden

The canopic equipment of the kings of Egypt by Aidan Dodson( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In spite of their significance as part of the burial equipment, canopic items have hitherto received relatively little attention in the literature of Egyptology. This book now documents and discusses all equipment made or used to contain the embalmed internal organs of the kings of ancient Egypt. While some containers were simple stone jars, many were objects of great artistic attainment, the high point perhaps being reached with the solid gold coffinettes of Tutankhamun and the gilded shrine that sheltered them, adorned by the exquisite figures of the four guardian goddesses. Such royal canopics are also of some historical import, one set of jars being key evidence of the existence of a new pharaoh of the Third Intermediate Period." "The book is divided into two parts. The first traces the morphological development of the various forms of container employed in kingly burials, with frequent reference to comparative material from the tombs of lesser members of the royal family and private individuals. The architectural arrangements made for the equipment are also commented upon and illustrated: In doing so, certain points of history and archaeology relating to royal burials are discussed in detail. The arrangement of the section is chronological, individual chapters being devoted to each of the principal eras of ancient Egyptian history. That dealing with the New Kingdom is co-authored by Dr Otto Schaden and Mr Edwin Brock, the latter presenting some of the results of his researches in the Valley of the Kings." "The second part catalogues all known canopic items belonging to kings of Egypt, the earliest dating to the Fourth Dynasty, the latest to the Twenty-sixth. Full details of material, dimensions, provenance, present location and bibliography are given. Photographs or drawings are provided for all significant pieces. Hand copies of all hieroglyphic texts are accompanied by translations prepared in collaboration with Dr Mark Collier and Dr Schaden. A full concordance with museum and excavators' numbers is given, before concluding with a bibliography and indexes."--Jacket
