About this item

The Middle Kingdom and Second Intermediate Period still attract relatively little research in comparison with other periods of Ancient Egyptian history. This volume aims to fill a gap, and to promote further research into the early second millennium BC. The volume presents a collection of studies by different authors focusing on a variety of aspects of the archaeological record. Several papers present new excavation reports and hitherto unpublished objects. Other topics include the dating of the local governors at Byblos, the transmission of offices in the period, the characteristic "magical wands" or Apotropaia, burials of royal women, and particular groups of stelae, with a new date proposed for a small but well-known corpus of wooden stelae from Thebes. Together these researches build on the range of approaches presented in Middle Kingdom Studies volume 1.
