The Mission of CIPEG is to promote collaboration among colleagues for the study, preservation, and presentation of Egyptian collections, monuments and sites. In addition, it supports collections of Egyptian art and archaeology, including the heritage of the Ancient Sudan, with a special focus on smaller collections, within the framework of ICOM and in close co-operation with the International Association of Egyptologists (IAE).
CIPEG also seeks to promote collaboration among museums, universities and research institutes as well as supplying partnership opportunities, sharing resources, knowledge and experience for an international forum, and holding an annual conference. CIPEG frames resolutions and policies to promote actions and, if requested, advises museum staff, scholars or institutions.

Virtual Manuscript Room (VMR)
http://vmr.bham.ac.uk/media/images/vmroom_right_banner.jpg
This site is the first phase of The Virtual Manuscript Room (VMR) project. In this phase, we present full digitized manuscripts from The Mingana Collection of Middle Eastern Manuscripts held at Special Collections in the University of Birmingham. This collection, previously unavailable on the web, has been designated as of national and international importance. As well as high-resolution images of each page, the VMR provides descriptions from the printed catalogue and from Special Collections' own records.

The next phase of the VMR will provide a framework to bring together digital resources related to manuscript materials (digital images, descriptions and other metadata, transcripts) in an environment which will permit libraries to add images, scholars to add and edit metadata and transcripts online, and users to access material. Two other groups of content, amounting to over 50,000 digital images of manuscripts, 500 manuscript descriptions and around 1000 pages of transcripts, will be added in the next phase of the VMR: materials relating to the New Testament and to medieval vernacular texts (Dante, Chaucer, and others)...

This site presents digital facsimiles of 71 manuscripts from the Mingana Collection, in 13209 images.

The Mingana Collection contains more than 3000 manuscripts in at least eleven languages, ranging from around the 6th to the 20th centuries. The collection is focused on manuscripts from the Middle East in Arabic, Syriac, Persian and Greek and has particular strengths in illustrated manuscripts, and early Islamic and Syraic materials (including one of the oldest Qur'ans in existence).

The core of the collection was acquired by Alphonse Mingana (1878-1937) in three trips to the Middle East between 1925 and 1929, with substantial support from Edward Cadbury. The Edward Cadbury Charitable Trust Inc. has continued to provide support for the maintenance and development of the collection, now housed in the University of Birmingham Department of Special Collections...

Matson (G. Eric and Edith) Photograph Collection
http://www.loc.gov/pictures/static/data/matpc/banner.jpg 
The G. Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection (formerly known as the "Matson Photo Service Collection") contains over 23,000 glass and film negatives, transparencies, and photographic prints, created by the American Colony Photo Department and its successor firm, the Matson Photo Service. The collection came to the Library between 1966 and 1981, through a series of gifts made by Eric Matson and his beneficiary, the Home for the Aged of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Diocese of Los Angeles (now called the Kensington Episcopal Home).

The American Colony Photo Department in Jerusalem was one of several photo services operating in the Middle East before 1900. Catering primarily to the tourist trade, the American Colony and its competitors photographed holy sites, often including costumed actors recreating Biblical scenes.

The American Colony outlasted the other services, successfully making the transition from 19th-century large-size albumen views to the smaller, less expensive picture postcard format which dominated the twentieth century. The firm’s photographers were actual residents of Palestine. Their intimate knowledge of the land and people gave them an advantage over commercial photographers who were not based in Palestine and made their coverage more comprehensive. They documented Middle East culture, history, and political events from before World War I through the collapse of Ottoman rule, the British Mandate period, World War II, and the emergence of the State of Israel.

The Matson Collection also includes images of people and locations in present-day Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, and Turkey. Additionally, the firm produced photographs from an East African trip. (For further background information on the American Colony and its Photo Department, see The American Colony and the Matson Photo Service).

The current state of research would suggest a classification as a Roman, or at least Roman influenced, weapon of the late Republican period. However, some peculiar elements of this sword seem to point to an oriental or Egyptian final assemblage. It thus may give a new impulse to the still open discussion about the appearance of Hellenistic swords starting from the period of Alexander's Successors. The weapon can have been used by soldiers of the late Ptolemaic period as well as by members of the Roman army. The question whether the sword ended up in the temenos as part of local defensive arms or as a votive object will largely remain speculative, as its find context is not stratigraphically reliable.

Ancient Grains: The website of Delwen Samuel and Mark Nesbitt
http://www.ancientgrains.org/wpimages/wp3166c7a6_06.png
We both work in archaeobotany - studying the archaeology of plants. Delwen Samuel’s interests include bread and beer in ancient Egypt, cereals and nutrition in the Old World, and food microscopy and other techniques of residue analysis. She is based in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Kings College London. Mark Nesbitt’s interests are in the prehistory and history of plant use in the Near East, especially Turkey, in all aspects of wheat and other Old World cereals, and in the beginnings of farming. Although still publishing in these areas, his day job is on current-day aspects of botany at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

On our website you can find out more about our work, and the places where we have done fieldwork, and download our publications. We would be glad to receive copies or PDFs of your publications.

Archaeobotanical Reports from Sites in the Near East
Compiled by Naomi F. Miller
http://www.sas.upenn.edu/~nmiller0/dungphoto.jpg
I am trying to compile a comprehensive bibliography of archaeobotanical site reports from the Near East. Right now I can e-mail text files for the bibliographies of Central Asia and beyond, Iran, Iraq, the Levant, Syria, Turkey, and the index organized by site. I'd appreciate hearing about references I have not listed. See contact information below. Thanks.

Interdisciplinaria Archaeologica : Natural Sciences in Archaeology (IANSA)
ISSN: 1804-848X
http://www.iansa.eu/pics/logo.png
The focus of Interdisciplinaria Archaeologica – Natural Sciences in Archaeology is the ongoing cooperation of archaeology with the natural sciences and other disciplines. The journal’s interests include bioarcheaology (archaeobotany, archaeozoology, archaeogenetics and anthropology), geoarchaeology (petro-archeology, micromorphology) and dating methods in archaeology. We will publish contributions that aim to solve archaeological questions utilizing the methods of the natural sciences and other fields. The birth of IANSA reflects the growing need of scientists in central Europe to access an international journal focused on the methods of the natural sciences and multidisciplinary cooperation in archaeology. The growth of natural science methodologies within archaeology has been very dynamic. It is anticipated that our target group of readers will also grow in the coming years and, along with traditional archaeological institutions, will gradually include specialized natural science institutions (natural science departments associated with archaeology focused museums, specialized laboratories, etc.) in the Czech Republic and abroad. IANSA also aims to provide a niche for historical studies, particularly those that cooperate with the natural sciences and archaeology.

The journal is strictly scientific, peer reviewed, and publishes only in British English. Each article is reviewed by two specialists in fields related to the content of the article. Our goal is to establish IANSA as a high quality specialty periodical, cited by the international Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Report (JCR), and with a high level JCR “Impact Factor”. A hardcopy of the journal is issued semi-annually, on glossy paper, and with an initial circulation of 500 pieces.

Hermeneus
Het NKV geeft vijf keer per jaar Hermeneus uit, een geïllustreerd, populair wetenschappelijk tijdschrift.











Het blad Hermeneus belicht alle aspecten van de klassieke beschaving: van Zeus tot Achilles, van Homerus tot Augustinus, van Socrates tot Plotinus, van Perikles tot Constantijn, van opgravingen tot musea. Maar ook: hoe de gewone Griek en Romein dacht, leefde en werkte. Ook bèta-onderwerpen, architectuur, economie, biologie, geneeskunde etc... komen aan de orde.
Tenminste één thema-nummer per jaar belicht diepgaand een speciaal onderwerp, bijvoorbeeld: de Griekse tragedie, komedie, Romeins België en Nederland, het antieke Rome, Ionië, invloed van de oudheid op latere perioden etc.

Tevens bevat Hermeneus actuele informatie over tentoonstellingen, lezingen en andere culturele activiteiten. Deze informatie vindt u in de rubriek Klassieke Agenda. Ook vindt u recensies over nieuwe boeken op het gebied van de klassieke oudheid.
Hermeneus kunt u lezen zonder kennis van Grieks en Latijn. Antieke teksten en begrippen worden altijd vertaald of toegelicht.
Alle artikelen van de jaargangen 1 - 78 (1928-2006) van Hermeneus zijn digitaal te raadplegen. Kijk op Hermeneus online.

About the Agade Mailing List
 
Jack M. Sasson, the Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Judaic and Biblical Studies at Vanderbilt University, has been collecting and distributing the Agade Mailing List for almost two decades, dating back to his position at The University of North Carolina, which still hosts the email distribution list. The Agade list forwards news and information of interest to scholars in biblical studies, Near Eastern studies, Late Antiquity, Judaica, Classics, archaeology, and even broad intellectual history. It is a valuable source of announcements, and these many guilds are in debt to Professor Sasson.

The Society of Biblical Literature has permission to collect these postings and to archive them. The Current Postings include announcements from the previous day. The Archive includes all prior announcements and will eventually date back to 2010. SBL does not supplement, eliminate, or otherwise emend the number or content of the announcements, and presents them in the order of their delivery.
So far the archive includes:

This will of course grow rapidly.

And note also the Agade Mailing List Archive on Twitter, where 1,0603 postings from Agade (as of today) are archived dating back to July 2011.
