What is in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead?

What is in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead? | Archeology on the Net | Scoop.it

‘The Book of the Dead’—it sounds so ominous and creepy.  One may picture a priestess chanting spells as a dusty mummy jerks up in his sarcophagus, but what is really in these mysterious sacred texts?

 

Well, it was kind of like a first aid kit, travel insurance and a bible all rolled into one totable papyrus."

MANAGING ARCHEOLOGICAL COLLECTIONS 2. INTRODUCTION TO CURATION
What is archeological curation?

Not only are archeological collections sometimes stored in inappropriate facilities, but these materials may suffer further from compression damage, water damage, and pest infestation.From the photograph collection of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District.
Archeological curation is an ongoing process. It involves the making of collections and their care and management over the long term. It also involves their accessibility to a variety of users for a number of uses.

Every archeological project produces an archeological collection. A collection of material remains may result from work at a single site or from a single investigation or project that involves a number of sites. Academic research and some contracted projects may yield a collection or series of collections from work at a single site over a number of years.

While many people might think of an archeological collection as only the objects or artifacts collected during an excavation or survey, other items are involved. These include:

non-cultural materials (e.g., ecofacts, soil samples, radiocarbon and other dating samples),
associated records (e.g., field notes, maps, photos, laboratory data),
digital data (e.g., Global Positioning data, field and laboratory data collected in a database, Computer Assisted Design (CAD) models.), which should be considered a component of associated records, and
research results or interpretation (e.g., site reports, results of "no finds", books, articles.)...

claudia patino's curator insight, February 7, 8:22 PM

Finding how ancient roman got there water supply is cool. But how was it discovered? Like were buildings being built over the water pipes, did natural disasters occur for the pipes to have vanished and now have been discovered again. Well it is nice that sites like these are being made available to the public to see, and lean about there history.

Des Français découvrent la plus ancienne barque d'Égypte

Des Français découvrent la plus ancienne barque d'Égypte | Archeology on the Net | Scoop.it

L'Institut français d'archéologie orientale du Caire signe une découverte majeure pour la connaissance des débuts de la civilisation pharaonique.

La datation au carbone 14 vient de le confirmer: la barque découverte à huit kilomètres des pyramides de Gizeh est bien la plus ancienne jamais trouvée en Égypte. C'est une équipe de l'Institut français d'archéologie orientale du Caire (Ifao) travaillant depuis 2008 en collaboration avec la Macquarie University de Sydney (Australie) qui a effectué cette mise au jour sur le site d'Abou Rawach, une nécropole de briques crues (mastabas) datant de la première dynastie (3150-2900 av. J.-C.) et connue depuis les années 1913-1914.
