Publication Subsidy for “The Archaeology of Urbanism in Ancient Egypt” Project

Grantee: Nadine Moeller: The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago

Category: Publication Subsidies

Objective: This AEF award was granted in order to cover two thirds of the production costs for illustrations in the forthcoming Cambridge University Press title; “The Archaeology of Urbanism in Ancient Egypt.” This book will fill an important gap in the understanding of Egyptian settlements and will serve as a primary reference work for Egyptologists, archaeologists and anthropologists. This monograph will include analyses of the overall settlement patterns and evolution through time by contrasting periods of strong political control against those of decentralization. Important research questions that are addressed create a model for ancient Egyptian towns and cities. The very nature of this kind of research requires a large number of illustrations and the AEF committee were very pleased to provide funding to support this important publication.
