Issue 11: April 2009


In addition to this issue's paper, a detailed technical study of one of the ancient shoes in the collection of the British Museum, readers attention is drawn to other resources now available on the Museum website. The online Collection database now features all of the records for material housed within the Department of the Middle East. There is much that relates directly to the cultures of the Nile Valley, most notably the Amarna letters.

In addition, two new online journals have been launched: the Bronze Age Review and the Technical Research Bulletin. The first issue of the latter includes an analysis of pigment inlays from Meidum.
