The Art of the Private Theban Tomb of Menna

By Dr. Melinda Hartwig
Earnest G. Welch School of Art and Design, Atlanta, Georgia

Excavations at Edfu

By Dr. Nadine Moeller
Oriental Institute, University of Chicago

When: 2:30 p.m., Sunday, February 23, 2014
Where: Barrows Hall, Room 110, Barrow Lane and Bancroft Way, UC Berkeley
How much: No charge, donations are welcome. For more information go to
http://home.comcast.net/~hebsed/lectures.htm or send email to Chapter President Al Berens at
***@comcast.net.

Synopsis: The latest fieldwork at Tell Edfu has focused on two new excavation areas, with the aim to
explore the development of the town during the 3rd millennium BC. A large area has been cleared from
sebbakh debris close to the Ptolemaic temple enclosure wall along the eastern side of the tell. The
settlement remains which have been excavated here consist of domestic structures dating to the 6th
dynasty. They are covering earlier settlement remains that are characterized by several enclosure
walls and a large building complex abandoned at the end of the 5th Dynasty. At least three
consecutive phases of town walls have been discovered which turn at a right angle towards the east.

The other excavation area is situated along the northern limits of the tell. Here the main focus has
been the excavation of a sequence of settlement remains built against the interior of a large town
enclosure wall. The earliest remains date to the transitional period between very end of the Old
Kingdom and the early First Intermediate Period. The town enclosure constitutes a phase of
settlement expansion, and simultaneously with construction of this new town wall, mud brick
installations were erected against its interior consisting of storage magazines and smaller rooms
used for administrative activities. These results provide a new perspective on early town planning.

About the Speaker: Nadine Moeller is Assistant Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at the Oriental
Institute, University of Chicago. She has been directing the Tell Edfu Project since 2001, and her
primary research interests are settlements and urbanism in ancient Egypt to which recently a new
project on the Egyptian absolute chronology has been added. This project focuses specifically on the
First and Second Intermediate periods and is a direct result of discoveries made at Tell Edfu. Dr.
Moeller has also investigated the evidence for a short term climate change in Egypt during the First
Intermediate Period. Her recently finished book manuscript is entitled ‘URBAN SOCIETY IN ANCIENT
EGYPT – An Archaeological Study of Egyptian Towns and Cities’, Volume I – The settlements from the
Predynastic Period to the end of the Middle Kingdom (ca. 3500-1650 BC)’. This book brings together
the latest archaeological data and presents an entirely new in-depth study setting the parameters
for Egypt as an early urban society, an aspect that has frequently been clouded by the repeated
comparisons to ancient Mesopotamian city-states. Apart from Tell Edfu, she has also participated in
excavations in Egypt at the sites of Abu Rawash, Memphis, Zawiet Sultan (Zawiet el-Meitin), the
Theban necropolis, the Valley of the Kings, Dendera and Elephantine.

Isis, Thoth, Mut and the Theban Hills, ARCE's Work in Luxor, 2011-2014
By Dr. Andrew Bednarski, Project Egyptologist, APS Luxor Papyri

*When*: 2:30 p.m., Sunday, September 21, 2014
*Where*: Room 254, Near Eastern Studies Lounge, 2nd floor, west end of Barrows Hall, Barrow Lane and
Bancroft Way, UC Berkeley
*How much*: No charge, donations are welcomed.
For parking suggestions and campus map please visit the Northern California Chapter website
<http://home.comcast.net/%7Ehebsed/lectures.htm> <http://home.comcast.net/~hebsed/lectures.htm>

*Description (from the arce.org website):*
Have you ever wished you could excavate an ancient Egyptian tomb? How about travel back in time to
see a temple as it looked thousands of years ago? Have you ever wished you could affect the way
people see the past? If so, then this lecture is for you. In this talk, Egyptologist Andrew
Bednarski will explain ARCE's work in Luxor over the past 3 years, including excavating the tomb of
Djehuty, cleaning the Roman Temple of Isis at Deir el Shelwit, opening the Temple of Mut in Karnak,
and completely transforming the ancient cemetery of the Valley of the Nobles in Luxor.

Theban Tomb 110 was the final resting place of Djehuty, a royal steward to two famous Egyptian
Pharaohs, Hatshepsut and Tuthmosis III. ARCE's efforts in his tomb include excavating, cleaning, and
opening it to the public. While the tomb has been accessible for at least the past 100 years, the
interior was in a sorry state before work began. At the same time, neither the tomb's burial shafts,
nor the area of its forecourt, had ever been excavated. The excavations thus far have proven very
exciting, with newly discovered hieroglyphs, coffins, mummies, and more.

Up until recently, the Temple of Isis at Deir el Shelwit was being used to hang laundry by local
villagers. Long neglected, and still only partially understood, the temple's interior, replete with
lavishly painted scenes of gods and kings, has only now been brought to light.

While not neglected to the same extent, Mut Temple has remained closed to the public for nearly a
generation. An important part of the larger Karnak Temple complex, Mut Temple has now been opened
thanks to ARCE's site preparation efforts.

The Valley of the Nobles is an ancient cemetery that was used continually by Egypt's ruling elite
for thousands of years. ARCE's work there has created the most up-to date map of the area, recorded
the site's recently demolished hamlets, cleaned mountains of debris, built visitor pathways, and
installed signage.

At a time during which the Egyptian economy was been ailing between 2011 and 2014, ARCE employed
approximately 1000 local skilled and unskilled workers, ran training programs for Egyptian
inspectors in conservation and archaeology, and radically improved a number of major tourist sites.
The results are a spectacular success and are now accessible for visitation.

*About the Speaker**(from the arce.org website):*
Dr. Andrew Bednarski is ARCE Luxor's Egyptologist. For the past three years he has field-directed
ARCE's excavations in and around TT 110, the tomb of Djehuty, as well as ARCE's project to record
the former hamlets of Sheikh Abd el Qurna. He earned his Ph.D. in Egyptology at Cambridge
University, has excavated extensively, and has published broadly on ancient Egyptian civilization.
His personal area of research is the history of Egyptology, a subject he addresses in his most
recent book, The Lost Manuscript of Frédéric Cailliaud, which was published by ARCE through the
American University in Cairo Press.

The Case of Herakleides: A Portrait Mummy from Roman Egypt

By Dr. Lorelei H. Corcoran, professor of Egyptian art and director of the Institute of Egyptian
Art & Archaeology in the Art Department at the University of Memphis

Herakleides' mummy in the J. Paul Getty Museum is covered with a red shroud, fitted with an
impressionistic Fayum portrait, and mysteriously contains in its wrappings a mummified ibis. In a
multidisciplinary research project, Dr. Corcoran sought to discover as much as possible about
Herakleides without unwrapping his mummy. Her lecture focuses on the funerary practices,
iconographic symbols, and religious beliefs of his world--and possible explanations for the ibis.

The Registrars at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo: Past, Present and Future

By Dr. Janice Kamrin, Metropolitan Museum of Art


LECTURE: 2:30 p.m. Sunday, December 14, 2014
SOUK: 1:30 p.m. Come early for the chapter's
annual Souk and stock up on holiday gifts.
LOCATION: Barrows Hall, Room 110, Barrow Lane
and Bancroft Way, UC Berkeley

No charge, donations are welcomed.

DESCRIPTION:
To students of ancient Egyptian archaeology, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is among the wonders of
the world. Its collection of Egyptian artifacts is the standard by which all other Egyptian
collections are measured. In addition to housing the world's largest collection of Pharaonic
antiquities, the Museum is known for the many treasures of King Tutankhamen. If you've been
following the news, you are aware of the revolution-inspired challenges recently faced by the
Egyptian Museum.
Assembling all available information regarding the artifacts in the Egyptian Museum's collection and
saving it for future generations is the full time job of the Registration, Collections Management,
and Documentation Department at the Museum. Because of ARCE's sponsorship, Egypt's first Registrars
are now fully trained and able to track all of the museum's objects and records, as well as follow
up on reports of possibly looted artifacts, often resulting in their recovery.

Join us for a look "behind the scenes" at the Egyptian Museum's Registration, Collections
Management, and Documentation Department, including its recent challenges and the modern-day unsung
heroes responsible for preserving its priceless records.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Dr. Janice Kamrin received her PhD in Asian and Middle Eastern Archaeology from the University of
Pennsylvania. She is Assistant Curator of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York,
and was Director of the ARCE-funded initial Egyptian Museum Collections Management training program
in Cairo. She has published numerous books and scholarly articles, including _Ancient Egyptian
Hieroglyphs: A Practical Guide_, "Tutankhamen's Missing Ribs" and "Eat Like an Ancient Egyptian."
