Prehistoric Egypt; Socioeconomic Transformations in North-east Africa from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Neolithic, 24.000 to 4.000 BC

Prehistoric Egypt,  Socioeconomic Transformations in North-east Africa from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Neolithic, 24.000 to 4.000 BC takes a supra-regional approach to the environmental and socioeconomic landscapes of SW Asia and NE Africa across this crucial period. Using a rich array of empirical data combined with a holistic theoretical approach, this book challenges many of the current ideas on the beginnings of food production in North-east Africa, and the secondary effects this transition had on human settlements and cultures.
This book is essential reading for anybody interested in the origins of the ancient Egyptian civilisation.

What did the Poor Take with Them? An investigation into Ancient Egyptian Eighteenth and Nineteenth Dynasty grave assemblages of the non-elite from Qau, Badari, Matmar and Gurob

A4, 136 pages, paperback; ISBN 978-1906137328

This study investigates the grave assemblages of the non-elite during the New Kingdom, using several different burial sites. Based on the author's database of over 3,000 artefacts, the statistical results will indicate if there was any noticeable shift in funerary practices from the early Eighteenth Dynasty to the end of the Nineteenth Dynasty, from an emphasis on replicating an earthly life after death by including practical, daily-life articles , to a more religious attitude, which necessitated the inclusion of a greater number of religious artefacts. Interpretation of the results may give some insight into the sociological and religious framework of the time, and if and why it changed.

Rosalind M. and Jac. J. Janssen

Growing up and Getting old in Ancient Egypt

Thirty represented old age in Ancient Egypt, yet in this book Egyptologists Rosalind and Jac. Janssen consider a wealth of life course transitions from birth to death. Prominent among these are going to school, puberty rituals, marriage, divorce, retirement, and even drawing a pension. The authors’ familiarity with both ancient hieratic texts and gerontological theory makes Growing up and Getting old in Ancient Egypt a unique volume with wide appeal in our present era of demographic change.
