The archaeological survey of the desert roads between Berenike and the Nile Valley : expeditions by the University of Michigan and the University of Delaware to the Eastern Desert of Egypt, 1987-2015( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of the Eastern Desert Roads Surveys brings together the research of two survey projects, the Michigan-Assiut Koptos-Eastern Desert Project and the University of Delaware-Leiden University Eastern Desert Surveys. From 1987 to 2001 and intermittently thereafter until 2015, these two survey teams worked independently to explore and document the archaeological remains along the routes connecting the Nile Valley cities of Koptos (modern Qift) and Apollinopolis Magna (modern Edfu) to the Red Sea port city of Berenike in Egypt. The result of these surveys was the documentation of seventy discrete archaeological sites ranging in date from the late Dynastic to the Late Roman periods, with many sites demonstrating long-term, multi-period occupation. The survey also recorded road sections, route marking cairns and graves/cemeteries.0This monograph brings together and integrates the discoveries of both teams, presenting a coherent analysis of the extensive surveys and the materials documented by each. Emphasis is placed on the physical setting of each site, its material remains--including preserved architecture, pottery and other surface finds--and relevant textual evidence, such as inscriptions, ostraka and related historical texts. A single chapter in gazetteer form is devoted to the sites themselves (excluding mines and quarries, which form a separate chapter), while other chapters present the geology of the region and ancient mines and quarries, which made use of the road network, the pottery evidence by phase, and specialist studies. An Introductory chapter offers historical and disciplinary context for the surveys and their subjects, tying the Berenike-Nile roads surveys into the corpus of archaeological surveys in Egypt and the wider Mediterranean world

Ornamental Stones by James A Harrell( )

1 edition published in 2013 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The ornamental stones of ancient Egypt comprise a large and diverse group of rocks. Their attractive colors and patterns, and ability to take a good polish, made them sought after for decorative applications in art and architecture. At least 48 varieties of ornamental stone were used by the Egyptians and these come from 45 known ancient quarries, two in northern Sudan and the rest in Egypt. &nbsp

An ancient quarry and the world's first geologic map from 1150 BC : Wadi Hammamat in Egypt's eastern desert( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Turin papyrus map is notable for being the only topographic map to survive from ancient Egypt and also for being one of the earliest maps in the world with real geographic content. ... This map shows a 15 km stretch of Wadi Hammamat ('Valley of Many Baths') in the central part of Egypt's Eastern Desert ... it can be seen that the papyrus clearly depicts Wadi Hammamat's long course and eventual confluence with wadis Atalla and el-Sid, the surrounding hills ... the quarry for bekhen-stone, and the gold mine and settlement at Bir Umm Fawakhir ('Well of the Mother of Pottery'). Bekhen-stone (geologically, metagraywacke sandstone and siltstone) is a beautiful grayish-green ornamental stone that was highly prized by the ancient Egyptians. The only quarry was in Wadi Hammamat, and this was worked sporadically from the Early Dynastic period through Roman times (about 3000 BC to 400 AD). The gold mine at Bir Umm Fawakhir was active during the New Kingdom and again in the Ptolemaic through Early Byzantine periods (about 1500 BC to 600 AD)."--Speaker's website
