Invisible Archaeologies: Hidden Aspects of Daily Life in Ancient Egypt and Nubia

by Loretta Kilroe (Editor)




Invisible Archaeologies: hidden aspects of daily life in ancient Egypt and Nubia brings together eight of the papers presented at a conference held in Oxford in 2017. The theme aimed to bring together international early-career researchers applying novel archaeological and anthropological methods to the 'overlooked' in ancient Egypt and Nubia - and included diverse topics such as women, prisoners, entangled communities and funerary displays. The papers use a range of archaeological and textual material and span from the Predynastic period to the Late Period. By applying methodology used so successfully within the discipline of archaeology over the past 20 years, they offer a different perspective on Egyptological research, and demonstrate how such theoretical models can broaden scholarly understanding of the Nile Valley.
