point Karine Gadré, membre des Ankhou : "Préalable à l'identification des décans égyptiens : constitution d'une base de données archéologiques" (Article en Français)
La succession des apparitions ou culminations d'étoiles dans le ciel nocturne ou crépusculaire de l'Egypte ancienne marquait les heures de nuit. Ces étoiles dont la période d'invisibilité annuelle avoisinait alors les 70 jours sont aujourd'hui qualifiées de décanales parce qu'elles effectuaient leurs levers héliaques à quelque dix jours d'intervalle. Leurs appellations hiéroglyphiques figurent sur l'intérieur du couvercle de sarcophages, sur la surface extérieure de clepsydres, au plafond de temples et de tombes datant de la Première Période Intermédiaire à l'Epoque Romaine. Chacun de ces vestiges fait partie d'une base de données archéologiques dont la réalisation a constitué le préalable à l'identification des 90 étoiles décanales à des étoiles visibles à l'oeil nu ...

point Alain Anselin, membre des Ankhou : "L'image comme Echo I. The Bestiary and the Stars" (Article en Anglais)
L'image comme écho pour reprendre le titre d'un bel ouvrage de l'essayiste haïtien Maximilien Laroche, réunit en article des notes préparatoires aux communications des Colloques Origins 5 et LPNEA 11 tenus respectivement au Caire en avril 2014 et à Poznan en juillet 2015. Les iconographies des sites archéologiques des sixième, cinquième et quatrième millénaires BC de la Vallée du Nil et de son vaste arrière-pays saharo-nubien sont les boîtes noires de cultures disparues ou dis-continuées plus loin, plus au sud, plus près de l'eau des lacs saisonniers, des oasis, du Nil et d'un réseau de rivières peu à peu perdues ... Images muettes pourtant ...

point Oum Ndigi : "Il était une fois ... un Jars, un Oeuf, et l'Univers ..." (Article en Français)
L'un des textes mythologiques les plus anciens de l'Egypte ancienne est le mythe de l'oeuf cosmique publié et interprété par Serge Sauneron et Jean Yoyotte en 1959. "L'oeuf, venu on ne sait comment, contenait un jars, le Grand Jargonneur, personnification solaire qui inaugurait le nouvel état du monde en jetant ses cris rauques à travers le silence". Le mythe hermopolitain suit un processus créateur plus précis. L'oiseau mythique est le jars lui-même ...

point Sebastian Francisco Maydana : "Of Hippopotami and Hawks. Some remarks on an Egyptian primeval rivalry" (Article en Anglais)
The Temple of Horus in Edfou is remarkable both for its architecture and its extraordinary state of preservation. Its walls, covered in inscriptions, tell the story of Horus of Behedet, the divine local hero, and his untimely confrontation with the disorderly power of Seth. Untimely, that is, out of time, repeated a thousand times over with the same invariable outcome : victory of the hawk god, his revenge over the death of his father Osiris and the reproduction of cosmic order ...

Publication of one of six wooden pieces in the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, USA. The wooden piece is a hawk statuette. Wood was used in ancient Egypt for different purposes such as making statues, furniture, coffins and funeral boxes. Ancient Egyptian local woods are sycamore fig, the Nile acacia, tamarisk, Carob, Dom Palm, and Date Palm. Although Egypt was not that rich in producing local wod of good quality, the ancient Egyptians tried very hard to overcome this problem by using what nature gave them. People of more lower classes especially used that local wood in producing statuettes, coffins, and furniture ...

point Galal Refai, Université d'Alexandrie : "The new symbolic significance to some Egyptian royal stelae dating back to the Roman period (II)" (Article en Anglais)
The majority of archaeologists dealt with the royal stela as a relief showing the relationship between the sovereign and the divinity, in addition to a text in ancient Egyptian language. However, this paper will touch upon the symbolic significance that lies behid some particular stelae dating back to Augustus, Tiberius, probably Domitian, and Dicocletian ...

point Hend Sherbiny : "Studies in Dendro-Chronology II. Wood trade routes and wood types and uses in Ancient Egypt" (Article en Anglais)
It is known in Egyptological litterature that indigenous Egyptian wood species are not of good quality ; good quality timber always had to be imported from the Near East. Connections between Egypt and Byblos in Lebanon are documented since the Old Kingdom. Byblos played an important role as a port, and from the time of the unification of Egypt it was employed by the ancient Egyptians as a major source of wood ...

Publication of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo naos CG 70041 of the goldsmith Sankhuher, found in the so-called "nécropole des chanteuses" by A. Mariette among the stelae of the songstresses of Osiris at Shunet el-Zebib, Abydos, dating to the late Twentieth Dynasty. Three women : Tabaketnetast, Tasethaeitenirriteth and Sheritre, and two men : Sankhuher and Shediwahsu, are represented inscribed in the surface of the clay naos in three scenes exhibiting three different epithets or manifestations of the god Osiris. Translitteration, translation and discussion of the naos are presented. A genealogy for all of these individuals is here proposed.

point Belen Castro : "Algunas observaciones sobre la realeza y las elites en los comienzos del periodo ramesida" (Article en Espagnol)
El vinculo entre los grupos de elite y la realeza faraonica a lo largo de la historia egipcia ha sido intenso y complejo. El hecho de su continuidad, aun con tensiones, ha llevado en los anos '80 a la afirmacion por parte del egiptologo Klaus Baer de que Egipto habria sido gobernado durante toda su existencia, no por una monarquia centralizadora y divina, sino por un reducido numero de familias importantes ...

point Uros Matic, Ph.D candidate, Institut für Agyptologie und Koptologie, WWU-Münster : "Are Dardanians attested in Egyptian sources ?" (Article en Anglais)
This paper deals with the toponym d3rdny / drdny / dndny attested in Ramesside sources (maybe even earlier) and often interpreted as the earliest attestation of Dardanians, later mentioned by Greek and Roman authors. First the corpus of known attestations is presented with context, date and orthography. Then the location of the toponym is discussed based on the Ramesside sources followed by a discussion of certain pecularities such as the Mryn.w drdny - "charioteers of drdny" and their depiction. Finally, the Egyptian attestations are compared to Greek and Roman sources and the problem of their use in archaeological interpretations is stressed, especially regarding the so-called Agaean migration and ethnicity ...
