Sowohl die Beurteilung des religionsgeschichtlichen Quellenwerts der Plutarch-Schrift "De Iside et Osiride" aus ägyptologischer als auch die Bewertung der Aktualität des Kenntnisstandes Plutarchs und anderer Autoren aus klassisch-philologischer Perspektive sind bislang durch fehlende interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit erschwert worden. In diesem Band werden nun die Beiträge zu einer Tagung veröffentlicht, die 2014 in Würzburg mit dem Ziel abgehalten wurde, jene Fachgrenzen zu überwinden. Der daraus hervorgegangene Tagungsband, zu dem renommierte Plutarchforscher und Platonismusspezialisten ebenso beigetragen haben wie auf den interkulturellen Austausch in ptolemäisch-römischer Zeit spezialisierte Ägyptologen, spiegelt den beiderseitigen Erkenntnisprozess wider: Plutarch, Jamblich, Prophyrios, Synesios oder die hermetsichen Autoren fanden die ägyptische Religion nicht als monolithischen, unveränderlichen Block vor, sondern noch als lebendige Praxis. Die Wiedergabe des von ihnen Rezipierten kann nur im Kontext der für sie so typischen Suche nach altem Wissen verstanden werden. Dieser Band legt damit den Grundstein für einen intensivierten Dialog zwischen der klassisch-altertumswissenschaftlichen genauso wie der ägyptologischen Seite.

This volume forms the proceedings of the conference, Egypt in its African Context, which took place at The Manchester Museum, University of Manchester, UK, on the 3-4 October 2009. The conference at Manchester had a number of aims: to address perceptions of Ancient Egypt in the West, in scholarly writing and public understanding; to present a scholarly approach to the subject of Egypt in Africa in order to counterbalance the extreme Afrocentric views within which such a debate is often contextualised; to investigate how community groups and professional Egyptologists can transfer their knowledge and points of view; and to present the work of scholars working on African-centred Egyptology to a wider audience including the traditional academic Egyptological community. Contents: Introduction: Egypt in its African Context (C. A. Folorunso and Stephen Quirke); 1) The Strategic Importance of Kemet (Kimani S. K. Nehusi); 2) The Nubian Pastoral Culture as Link between Egypt and Africa: A View from the Archaeological Record (Maria Carmelo Gatto); 3) The Predynastic Bos primigenius as a Royal Image of Territory, Boundaries and Power in an African Context (Ana I. Navajas Jimenez); 4) Some Notes about an Early African Pool of Cultures from which Emerged the Egyptian Civilisation (Alain Anselin); 5) Egypt in Afrika and Afrika in Egypt: The Example of Libation (Kimani S. K. Nehusi); 6) Meroitic Worship of Isis at Philae (Solange Bumbaugh); 7) Critical Comments on Essays on Interpreting Ancient Egypt presented at the Egypt in its African Context Conference (Charles A. Grantham); 8) Contesting Egypt: Facts, Rhetoric or Sentiment? (C. A. Folorunso); 9) West African Perspectives on Ancient Egypt: African Renaissance (Jose Lingna-Nafafe); 10) Petrie's Revolutions: The Case of the Qurneh Queen (Bill Manley); 11) Public Understandings of Ancient Egypt in the Formation of Dalit and Afro-American Identities and History Curriculum (Clyde Ahmad Winters); 12) Curating Kemet, Fear of a Black Land?

The fifth and fourth millennia BCE saw major cultural changes in the southern Levant and Northeast Africa: the spread of agriculture; developments in animal husbandry; increased contact between cultures; and the use of alloy bronze. 'Metal, Nomads and Culture Contact' integrates archaeological data from across the Chalcolithic period to contextualise these changes. The book examines the introduction of metal to the southern Levant, Egypt and Lower Nubia and the role of pastoral nomadism in cultural interaction and exchange. 'Metal, Nomads and Culture Contact' will be valuable to scholars of archaeology and anthropology.

From the exodus of early modern humans to the growth of African diasporas, Africa has had a long and complex relationship with the outside world. More than a passive vessel manipulated by external empires, the African experience has been a complex mix of internal geographic, environmental, sociopolitical and economic factors, and regular interaction with outsiders. Peter Mitchell attempts to outline these factors over the long period of modern human history, to find their commonalities and development over time. He examines African interconnections through Egypt and Nubia with the Near East, through multiple Indian Ocean trading systems, through the trans-Saharan trade, and through more recent incursion of Europeans. The African diaspora is also explored for continuities and resistance to foreign domination. Commonalities abound in the African experience, as do complexities of each individual period and interrelationship. Mitchell s sweeping analysis of African connections place the continent in context of global prehistory and history. The book should be of interest not only to Africanists, but to many other archaeologists, historians, geographers, linguists, social scientists and their students."

The volume presents all the data collected during the cycle of research conducted by the Italian Archaeological Mission in the Farafra Oasis between 1990 and 2005. The 29 multidisciplinary essays contained in this book provide a detailed picture of the population of the Farafra Oasis, hitherto one of the least well known within the Western Desert. Farafra became particularly important during the middle Holocene, the period when climate conditions were most favourable, with later brief humid episodes even in the historic periods. The results of the long-term research cycle presented here, combined with data from the survey of the whole Wadi el Obeiyid still in progress, allow the authors to identify changes in the peopling of the oasis and to define various occupation phases. The new chronology for the Wadi el Obeiyid is one of the main achievements of the book and, as demonstrated in the final chapter, is in complete agreement with the main cultural units of other territories in the Western Desert. On this chronological basis, the contacts between the latter and the populations established on the Nile are brought into sharper focus. The importance of the archaeological documents discovered at Farafra and, at the same time their fragility due to the deterioration of the physical environment and the uncontrolled human activities, make us fear for their conservation. We hope that this book, with its complete documentation of the precious nature of the Farafra Oasis landscape and its archaeological heritage, may help to promote more effective policies for its safeguard.

Das von A. Erman und H. Grapow herausgegebene Worterbuch der agyptischen Sprache (Band I-V aus den Jahren 1926-1931; Belegstellen aus den Jahren 1935-1953) enthalt nur wenige Belege aus der agyptischen Fruhzeit (0.-3. Dynastie; ca. 3150-2600 v.Chr.). Die Grunde hierfur sind wohl zweierlei Art: Zum einen waren bei Erscheinen des Worterbuches der agyptischen Sprache erst wenige fruhzeitliche Fundplatze - und damit noch nicht alle heute bekannten Schrifttrager - ausgegraben, zum anderen standen die schwierige Lesbarkeit und das oftmals mangelnde Verstandnis des Inhalts der Inschriften einer Aufnahme in ein Lexikon entgegen. Forschungsarbeiten, die in der zweiten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts durchgefuhrt wurden, konnten diese Situation verbessern, ohne jedoch eine systematische lexikalische Aufbereitung des gesamten fruhzeitlichen Materials zu bieten. Mit der ersten Lieferung des Fruhagyptischen Worterbuches liegt erstmals eine umfassende Zugangsmoglichkeit zum Wortschatz des greifbaren Anfangsstadiums schriftlich fixierter agyptischer Sprache vor: zum Fruhagyptischen. Es dient ausserdem der Vervollstandigung des Wissens um das altagyptische Lexikon im Allgemeinen (z.B. der Erweiterung der im Worterbuch der agyptischen Sprache angegebenen Schreibungen und Belegzeitraume). Geplant sind insgesamt 6 Lieferungen und eine Einbanddecke.
