    Da arkæologen Howard Carter efter ti års ihærdig søgen den 4. november 1922 fandt indgangen til barnekongen Tutankhamons grav, var hans lykke gjort. Der var nok guld til at gøre ham og hans sponsor, adelsmanden lord Carnarvon, både berømte og stenrige. Men ikke alt var fryd, guld og gammen. Fundene førte til slagsmål mellem journalister, styrkede nationalistiske strømninger i Egypten og var med til at forværre det anspændte forhold mellem Egypten og Storbritannien. Jagten på Tutankhamon er ikke kun en dramatisk fortælling med helte og skurke, forbandelser og ørkenstøv, glitrende guld og rygter om et 3.000 år gammelt kongemord. Det er i høj grad også en historie om skattens betydning, det oldegyptiske samfund og Carters egyptiske kolleger – de kvinder, mænd og børn, som er blevet glemt. Det er historien om Tutankhamons korte liv og den lange søvn, som Carter vækkede ham af. Og endelig er det fortællingen om, hvordan fundene kom til at præge den vestlige verdens syn på de gamle egyptere. Nicky Nielsen er lektor i egyptologi ved University of Manchester. Den danske forsker har deltaget i en lang række udgravninger i Egypten. Jagten på Tutankhamon er hans første bog på dansk.

    This volume is the first in a new series of editions of Coptic-language "magical" manuscripts from Egypt, written on papyrus, ostraca, parchment, and paper, and dating to between the fourth and twelfth centuries CE. Their texts attest to non-institutional rituals intended to bring about changes in the lives of those who used them - heal disease, curse enemies, bring about love or hatred, or see into the future. These manuscripts represent rich sources of information on daily life and lived religion of Egypt in the last centuries of Roman rule and the first centuries after the Arab conquest, giving us glimpses of the hopes and fears of people of this time, their conflicts and problems, and their vision of the human and superhuman worlds. This volume presents 37 new editions and descriptions of manuscripts, focusing on formularies or "handbooks", those texts containing instructions for the performance of rituals. Each of these is accompanied by a history of its acquisition, a material description, and presented with facing text and translations, tracings of accompanying images, and explanatory notes to aid in understanding the text.

    What happens when we close our eyes for the very last time? The ancient Egyptians provide a fascinating answer to human life’s most enigmatic question. Over three millennia the rich river civilisation along the banks of the Nile develops funerary customs which enable the Egyptians to find their way to eternal life, where everyone who lives and dies is reborn. It all begins in the embalming workshop, where the dead are transformed into mummies. Chapter by chapter, the reader is initiated into how ancient Egyptians achieved immortality. A lost culture’s conception of death and its incredible burial customs are unfolded and explained, revealing a fantastic and compelling universe of myths and rituals. At first glance, it all appears alarmingly alien, but gradually it begins to make sense and speak to us across the many millennia. Published in conjunction with Moesgaard Museum’s special exhibition Ancient Egypt – Obsessed with life, this book can also be read as an independent introduction to the Egyptians’ conceptions of the afterlife.With contributions by Tine Bagh, Paul John Frandsen, Ole Herslund, Rune Nyord, Rune Olsen, Maxime Rageot, Sofie Schiødt, Philipp Stockhammer and Jørgen Podemann Sørensen.

    Den urgamle egyptiske kaosgud Seth genfødes i nutidens København. Med en grådighed hinsides godt og ondt kaster han sig ud i livet og trækker et spor af ødelæggelse efter sig. Samtidig sidder den unge musikstuderende Gabriel og analyserer en nyopdukket arie til Mozarts Tryllefløjten. Gradvist afsløres et forunderligt netværk af sammenhænge, fra Tryllefløjtens elskende par, over gudeparret Osiris og Isis, til Gabriel og barndomsveninden Héloise, der til sidst begge må sætte livet på spil i et forsøg på at mane Seths vilde kræfter i jorden. Djævelens kvint er en medrivende spændingsroman, hvor tråde og temaer slynger sig mellem hinanden i en fabel om balancen mellem orden og kaos, mellem liv og død. Djævelens kvint er første del af trilogien Gudestorm. “Egyptologi, musikhistorie, klassisk filologi, filosofi, okkultisme og mange andre materier forenes i en herligt ambitiøs og velskrevet historie … En usædvanlig og usædvanligt begavet spændingshistorie.” Politiken “Det er fantastisk udtænkt, farverigt og vildtvoksende, og der ligger mange spændende og sprængfarlige emner på lur under underholdningens overflade.” Kristeligt Dagblad ”Ikke siden Umberto Ecos Rosens navn har man set en spændingsroman - også lidt af en kærlighedsroman - baseret på et så stort filosofisk-religiøst historisk apparat … Spændende som bare pokker.” Weekendavisen

    Women Forgotten in History unveils the captivating narratives of extraordinary women whose stories have been marginalized and obscured throughout time. As we reflect on history, it becomes apparent that the majority of names we encounter are those of men. But does this imply that women have contributed little or led uneventful lives? Or is it rather an indication that their achievements and stories have been obscured and overshadowed throughout the ages? Within the pages of this enlightening book, a tapestry of forgotten stories comes to life. From ancient Egyptian pharaohs to courageous teenagers who defied Nazi occupation, a diverse tapestry of women emerges from the shadows, these women reclaim their rightful place in history's narrative. Some forged inspiring paths as activists for noble causes, while others left a more morally complex legacy, their stories often veiled in mystery and legend. Despite their contrasting backgrounds and experiences, these women share a common thread: their captivating stories and the tragic reality that their lives and accomplishments have been forgotten or deliberately obscured with the passage of time. However, within their tales lie profound inspiration waiting to be rediscovered. Women Forgotten in History invites readers to embrace the richness of these forgotten narratives, to honour these remarkable women, and to find in their stories a wellspring of empowerment and motivation.

    This volume is the first in a planned edition of the complete corpus of ancient Mesopotamian god lists. It contains the lists "An = Anum" (including its forerunners) and "An = Anu Sa ameli" along with several similar, more-or-less fragmentary lists. The god list An = Anum was, with its ca. 2000 entries, the most comprehensive list of its kind. It is systematically organized and contains explanations both of individual deities and of certain groups of deities. The textual witnesses also provide, to a varying degree, pronunciation and translation glosses. In this edition each list is presented as a composite reconstructed text with translation, critical apparatus, and synoptic table of the textual witnesses, followed in each case by a philological commentary. In addition, the textual witnesses are transliterated individually. Names, words, and glosses are made accessible through detailed indexes. Hand copies and photographs of previously unpublished sources conclude the volume.

    This volume presents detailed results on the manufacturing technology and elemental composition of some 136 objects in the collections of six European museums, with discussion of the findings in historical and cultural contexts. The starting point was the remarkable jewelry buried with a woman and a child who lived about 1650-1550 BC at Qurna, the West Bank of ancient Thebes in Upper Egypt. The questions generated from this find led to investigation of assemblages and individual artifacts from earlier periods in varied social contexts, from the rural environment of Qau and Badari, to sites connected with urban or royal centers, such as Riqqa, Haraga and Lahun.

    A Study of the Sacred District Scene in Private Tomb Decoration compiles images from almost forty tombs, dating to the New Kingdom or later, and breaks down the different micro-scenes that can make up a Sacred District scene. These scenes are comprised of combinations of the seventeen different episodes, or micro-scenes, and are generally embedded within the funerary scenes in any given tomb. They typically appear in the passage of a T-shaped tomb and are the last scene before the deceased has reached the hereafter, thus suggesting that the Sacred District represents a liminal area the dead must traverse before the afterlife. The Sacred District reaches its peak in popularity during the reigns of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III of the eighteenth dynasty but can still be found in some late period tombs that exhibit archaizing trends. Examples are found on the west bank of Thebes and at Elkab and Hierakonpolis.

    ""In ancient Egypt, a woman's primary role was that of mother, and as such she ensured her place within both her household and her community. And so, gods, doctor-magicians, as well as ghosts were all called upon to help the woman become pregnant. Pregnancy was not without risks, and the many tests, prescriptions, and spells that have survived to this day help us to understand obstetrics as it was practiced in those distant times. Once the woman had eluded the ill will of Seth-who was held responsible for miscarriages-and had reached her term, she was faced with the much awaited and yet also feared moment of birth. The successful delivery of a child into the world was seen as a gift of the gods, but it did not mean that the parent's worries were over. Indeed, it has been estimated that a third of all children did not reach the age of five years despite the combined efforts of parents and doctor-magicians to protect them. Amandine Marshall draws upon a wealth of sources, including texts, images, iconography, artefacts, and children's bodies themselves, as well as medicine, anthropology, and ethnography, to examine these issues and more, and in doing so sheds unprecedented light on the experience of maternity and early childhood in ancient Egypt.""--

    The Late Middle Kingdom and the Second Intermediate Period were the heyday for scarab seals with names in Ancient Egypt. During this time, names of kings and non-royal individuals occur on hundreds of scarabs and their impressions making scarabs one of the primary groups of written sources for the period. This book explores research paths opened by confronting the textual evidence provided by scarabs with the stylistic and typological traits observable on them in an effort to recontextualize these miniature decorative objects, most of which stem from mass-scale undocumented plundering in the late 19th and early 20th century.The book takes a new perspective on scarab production in Egypt showing that different types of scarabs were produced concurrently, and the production of scarabs was not limited to a single centre at a given period. It amends the methodology of studying Middle Bronze Age scarabs in Egypt to acknowledge that artisans purposefully reproduced certain scarab styles. The study contributes to the ongoing discussions on the chronology of the Second Intermediate Period, Egypt's interconnections with the Levant and the role of foreigners in Egypt in the Middle Kingdom.
