Conference on the Bioarchaeology of Egypt
31 January-2 February 2013
American University in Cairo

Our understanding of ancient Egypt has long been rooted in the more
obvious manifestations of its material culture in the form of monumental
architecture and a vast variety of artefacts. Increasingly, however,
attention is given to the less spectacular, but equally, if not more
informative bioarchaeological remains that answer questions on health
and nutritional status of ancient populations, animal husbandry, diet,
agricultural practices, the economy and the natural environment. This
conference, the Bioarchaeology of Ancient Egypt, will provide a venue
for scholars from the different disciplines of Egyptology, archaeozoology,
physical anthropology, and archaeobotany to meet, present and discuss
their research in the hopes of future integrated collaboration.


Call for Papers

Please send paper title, abstract, and your affiliation to:
