Pottery and Economy in Old Kingdom Egypt (Culture and History of the Ancient Near East)

Buy
This book began its life as my doctoral dissertation at the University of Pennsylvania. Many thanks to my mentors: the members of my committee, Josef Wegner, David P. Silverman, and Miroslav Bárta, who provided helpful feedback and support at the early stages of my research, and Salima

Ikram, who first introduced me to pottery through the North Kharga Oasis Survey. Ceramics for used in this study’s analyses were augmented with unpublished materials kindly provided by Dietrich Raue (then of the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, Kairo and director of the Elephantine excavations), Mark Lehner and Anna Wodzińska (the Ancient Egypt Research Associates, excavations at Heit el-Ghurob), and Lawrence Berman (the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, materials from Reisner’s Giza excavations). These unpublished materials rounded out my corpus and enabled my analyses.

While preparing the manuscript I was employed at two different institutions: West Virginia University Institute of Technology and Roanoke College. I am grateful to both institutions for their support of my scholarship. Funding for revising the manuscript came in part from the West Virginia Humanities Council, Fellowship number 12028. Roanoke College funded image permissions through a Faculty Professional Advancement grant and also provided funding for a research assistant to aid in the finalization of this manuscript. I am grateful to Thomas Schneider for accepting this volume into the Culture and History of the Ancient Near East series and Katie Chin at Brill for her help during the submission and editing process.

My thanks to the numerous individuals and institutions who provided permission to reprint their images in this text: the Ancient Egypt Research Associates, Colin Hope and the Australian Centre for Egyptology, the Czech Institute of Egyptology, the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, Abteilung Kairo, the Egypt Exploration Society, the Institut français d’archéologie orientale, the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, Peeters Publishers, the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Teodozja Rzeuska and IKSIO PAN, and Verlag der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Also, thanks to Ramadan Hussein for putting me in touch with the editors of ASAE.
