The Journal of Egyptian Archaeology
The 100th volume of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology (JEA) has now been published and mailed to subscribers. To commemorate this very special anniversary volume, we have included more articles than usual bringing the total number of pages to over 500(!). There is also a special introductory note by the new Editor-in-Chief, Dr Martin Bommas, the Chair of Trustees, Dr Aidan Dodson, and Director, Dr Chris Naunton. Furthermore, we also delighted to report that with this volume, for the first time, short summaries of all articles in Arabic are included at the start of each article. The summaries - in both Arabic and English - are collected together here.
The Society's representative in Cairo, Essam Nagy, and JEA Editor-in-Chief, Dr Martin Bommas, celebrate the publication of the new volume at the Society's Cairo office
Copies of the new volume can be purchased from the Society’s online shop here.
The Oxyrhynchus Papyri vol. LXXX
The 80th volume of The Oxyrhynchus Papyri (= the 101st volume in the Graeco-Roman Memoirs series) has also recently been published and copies distributed to subscribers. This volume contains texts studied in the course of the project “New Medical Papyri from Oxyrhynchus”, funded by the Wellcome Trust. These include known medical texts by Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Galen, but also new material: texts from the 1st to 3rd/4th centuries on acute diseases, medical recipes, surgical texts, and doctors' reports. It is the first major collection of medical papyri from a single place and certain texts have caught the attention of the media, leading to headlines about an 'ancient Egyptian cure for a hangover’!
Copies of The Oxyrhynchus Papyri vol. LXXX are available for purchase here.
Finally, the 46th issue of the Society's glossy magazine Egyptian Archaeology has also recently appeared and includes a first publication of the recently discovered temple of Mentuhotep Nebhepetre by Dr Joseph Wegner and colleagues, the latest on the crucially important but threatened site of Heliopolis by Drs Aiman Ashmawy and Dietrich Raue on Heliopolis, and a report by Dr Alice Stevenson on the major new project 'Artefacts of Excavation' in which the Society is heavily involved. You may also notice some slight changes to the layout, which we hope will make EA an even more enjoyable read.
