Dear all, Today we say goodbye to our current board of organisation as it is time to hand over the board to a new team of students. We say goodbye to our founders Lonneke Delpeut and Fania Kruijf, as well as to Chris Langer and Wojtek Ejsmond who have been involved with ASE from the beginning. From a brainstorm at the CRE in Florence, we went to being an international association with currently over 250 members. The current board would like to thank everyone for your enthusiasm, and the association will only become more active in the future. We have faith in the next board members, Luiza Silva as president, Mohamed Ibrahim as events manager, and Marisol Solchaga as head of marketing. Rennan Lemos will stay on the board as secretary. Good luck everyone! ...

Andrzej Niwiński talks about Yellow Coffins
January 16, 2018, 6:00pm - January 16, 2018, 7:30pm
On January 16th, Museo Egizio hosts its first conference of 2018: "The development of the iconographic repertoire of the 21st Dynasty coffins as the new dating criterion", presented by Professor Andrzej Niwinski.
The so-called yellow grounded coffins offer an interesting example of complex iconography. A classification of these artefacts, based on the decoration style, was suggested 30 years ago by Dr. Andrzej Niwiński (A. Niwiński, 21st Dynasty Coffins from Thebes. Chronological and Typological Studies. = THEBEN V, Mainz 1988) and it is still in use. New researches on this rich iconographic catalogue have employed a new dating method, based on the comparison between the evolution in the decoration style and the changes in society or during important events occurred in Thebes. During the conference, Dr. Niwiński will explain the dating method used and he will present to the audience the most recent discoveries in this field.
Dr. Andrzej Niwiński is currently Professor at the University of Warsaw and he is employed at the Seminary of Egyptian and Nubian Archaeology of the Institute of Archaeology. He previously worked at the University Lille III where he taught Egyptology.
