MKS is a peer-reviewed series with an advisory board of international renown, and from 2018 indexed by Scopus/Elsevier.
The series encompasses all aspects of the Middle Bronze Age in Egypt 2050-1550 BC.
MKS has two aims: to provide, within a focussed editorial structure, new direction and impetus to the Middle Kingdom research; and to create a discussion space for both established and emerging scholars,
who wish to publish new ideas, researches, and findings relating to this period. The series also aims to go beyond a geographical segmentation of ancient history of Egypt,
opening the field beyond its geographical borders, encouraging the submission of studies on Nubian, Mediterranean, and Near Eastern topics relating to that time scope and Egypt.

The personal adornments and objects from the burial of Queen Ahhotep belong to one of the most spectacular finds from Ancient Egypt. The history of their discovery is still a mystery. Even the identity of the queen is not fully solved. The twelve essays in this volume tackle different problems around the objects from the tomb of the queen.
