Conference on the Bioarchaeology of Ancient 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.
