Cuadernos de Lengua Egipcia

Cuadernos de Lengua Egipcia
En este conjunto de diez fascículos, que iremeos publicando periódicamente, hemos intentado resumir de una forma didáctica, asequible y concisa, la evolución de la lengua egipcia desde sus etapas más iniciales, el egipcio antiguo, pasando por la lengua clásica (lengua vernácula del Reino Medio, Dinastía XII) y el neoegipcio (lengua posterior a la XVIII Dinastía) hasta el copto, que todavía, hoy en día, permanece vigente en la liturgia de la iglesia cristiana copta.El periplo comienza, en el fascículo I, con la situación lingüística del egipcio dentro del esquema de las lenguas afroasiáticas. Posteriormente nos adentramos con brevedad en el desciframiento de los jeroglíficos y en las bases en las que se asienta la escritura egipcia. A partir de entonces y hasta el final, el fascículo X, se recorren los principales aspectos de la gramática egipcia, la construcción de los sustantivos: su género y número.

Para continuar con los principales aspectos sintácticos, predicados adverbiales y sustantivos (fascículo IV). El resto del trabajo se dirige a un estudio bastante exhaustivo del sistema verbal egipcio (fascículos V, VI y VII) completado con las formas de negación y las proposiciones interrogativas en la lengua de los egipcios.

Finalizaremos con unas pequeñas pinceladas de la subordinación. En las líneas precedentes hemos podido entrever que el egipcio es una lengua en toda su dimensión y que en su fase inicial, los jeroglíficos, no son signos ideográficos en su mayoría, sino signos fonéticos que construyen un lenguaje bien estructurado.Esperamos que disfrutéis con toda esta pequeña introducción.

Open Access Journal: Horizon: The Amarna Project and Amarna Trust Newsletter

 [First posted in AWL 1 March 2010. Updated 14 December 2016]

Horizon: The Amarna Project and Amarna Trust Newsletter
The ancient Egyptian city of Tell el-Amarna (or simply Amarna) was the short-lived capital built by the ‘heretic’ Pharaoh Akhenaten and abandoned shortly after his death (c. 1332 BCE). It was here that he pursued his vision of a society dedicated to the cult of one god, the power of the sun (the Aten). As well as this historic interest Amarna remains the largest readily accessible living-site from ancient Egypt. It is thus simultaneously the key to a chapter in the history of religious experience and to a fuller understanding of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian. There is no other site like it.

Settlement History of Iraqi Kurdistan

 [First posted in AWOL 31 July 2013, updated 15 December 2016]

Settlement History of Iraqi Kurdistan
The aim of the project is to identify prehistoric and historical settlement along the plains on both sides of the Great Zab river, at the foot of the mountains of Kurdistan. In order to complete this objective, archaeological survey will be carried out within the work permit area (UGZAR - Upper Greater Zab Archaeological Reconnaissance) (MAP 1). A detailed catalogue of archaeological sites will be created as a result of this survey, spanning from the Paleolithic period to the late Middle Ages, and will contain data about the size, duration of occupation, and the conservation status of each identified site. A comprehensive outline of the history of settlement in the region will be developed on this basis.

New Online at the CHS: The Aethiopis: Neo-Neoanalysis Reanalyzed, by Malcolm Davies

The Aethiopis: Neo-Neoanalysis Reanalyzed, by Malcolm Davies, is now available to read online on the CHS website.

From the Book Description

Davies coverIt may seem odd to devote an entire book, however short, to a lost epic of which hardly any fragments (as normally defined) survive. The existence of a late prose summary of the epic’s contents hardly dispels that oddness. One (rather long) word may supply justification: Neoanalysis.
This once influential theory held that motifs and episodes in the Iliad derive from the Aethiopis, called thus after an Ethiopian prince who allied with Troy against the Greeks, only to be killed by the Greeks’ greatest hero, Achilles. The death of that hero himself, at the hands of Paris, was then described, followed by the suicide of Ajax and preparations for the sack of Troy. The prose summary thus suggests a sequel to Homer’s poem, rather than its source, and for various reasons, especially the theory’s apparent failure to allow for the concept of oral composition, Neoanalysis fell into disfavor. Its recent revival in subtler form, given its vast potential implications for the Iliad’s origins, has inspired this volume’s critical reappraisal of that theory’s more sophisticated reincarnation. In addition, even more than with other lost early epics, the possibility that Greek vase paintings may reflect episodes of the poem must be examined.

New Open Access Book: Leatherwork from Elephantine (Aswan, Egypt)

Leatherwork from Elephantine (Aswan, Egypt)

Analysis and Catalogue of the Ancient Egyptian & Persian Leather Finds

André J. Veldmeijer | 2016

ISBN: 9789088903717

Imprint: Sidestone Press | Format: 210x280mm | 185 pp. | Language: English | Category: Egyptian archaeology, Elephantine, leatherwork, footwear, Persian archaeology, material culture studies, materiality, New Kingdom, Ancient Egypt | download cover
‘Leatherwork from Elephantine’ describes, illustrates and analyses the finds from the excavations at Elephantine island (Aswan, Egypt) that are conducted by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), in collaboration with the Swiss Institute for Architectural and Archaeological Research on Ancient Egypt (SI). The majority of the finds are dated to periods well after the pharaonic era (4th century AD onwards), save for a few finds from the New Kingdom and the Middle Kingdom. The majority of finds are sandals and shoes. Most important for leatherwork/footwear studies, however, is the footwear from the Persian layers (6th-5th c. BC), which is distinctly different from ancient Egyptian leatherwork. Ample attention will be given to this important group.

Open Access Journal: EEF News

[First posted on AWOL 8 August 2011, updated  17 December 2016]

EEF News
EEF NEWS is an email newsletter posted on the EEF mailinglist. It appears every week, on Thursday. Below you'll find the website version, which is also renewed after every following weekend (usually on Sunday evening).

For subscription to the EEF, the moderated scholarly mailinglist for mainstream Egyptology, see http://www.egyptologyforum.org or the link at the end of this page. The EEF list also has a daily digest option and a weekly digest option, and has monthly archives (digests and archives are all sorted by topic). There is no seperate subscription list for the NEWS alone, so if you are less interested in following debates, you may get the News by either visiting this website or by subscribing to the Weekly EEF Digest (meaning you'll get the NEWS on Thursday and one easily deleted Digest on Sunday). 

Major news items which are of obvious interest for the list as a whole (like first-hand announcements of discoveries ad excavation reports) are best posted directly on EEF; smaller news bits (like announcements of lectures, website updates/reviews, email address changes etc.) are good candidates for being bundled in EEF NEWS.
