Wilkinson Egyptology Series

Founded in 2013, the Wilkinson Egyptology Series is a peer-reviewed imprint of the UAEE. The book series is open to proposals from all scholars in the field of Egyptology for publication of monographs, comprehensive site reports, conference proceedings, and other edited works. The goal of the Series is to assist scholars in bringing high-quality work to print quickly, through a review process akin to those of most major journals. After a period of not more than five years, each volume will be made available online, free of charge. The series is named after and designed to reflect Richard H. Wilkinson's prolific academic career: producing the highest quality work in a timely manner. Contributions to the UAEE in honor of Professor Wilkinson will be marked to support the Series specifically, and can be made here.

The Series logo is an abbreviated writing of the word rHw, meaning "companions, comrades, fellows," an appropriate reminder that these works are offered in the spirit of advancing our collective knowledge and could not have been produced without the benefit of the work of those who have come before. See A.H. Gardiner, Egyptian Grammar (3rd edition revised, Oxford: Griffith Institute, 1957) pg 578 for the translation. Logo design is derived from JSesh, an open source editor for ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts (see:

Ancient Mediterranean Interconnections: Papers in Honors of Nanno Marinatos (ISBN 9780989815222; 2015)

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections, special issue (7.3)

Professor Nanno Marinatos (University of Illinois at Chicago) stands as a leading figure in the area of interconnections between the ancient Aegean and the wider world of the Eastern Mediterranean, the Near East and Egypt. The editors of JAEI, along with some of her many friends, feel it particularly fitting to offer this tribute to her and her work. Ten manuscripts authored by some of the most prominent members of their fields are well illustrated in full color in more than 100 pages.

Offered in digital format via the journal (subscription required), this festschrift has also been printed in book form and can be purchased via numerous booksellers, and its international extensions.


Image & Voice in Saite Egypt: Self-Presentations of Neshor Named Psamtikmenkhib and Payeftjauemawyneith (ISBN 9780964995833; 2014)

Wilkinson Egyptology Series, vol. II

In December 2014, the UAEE published this work, by Hussein Bassir. At 269 pages and including 25 figures and 34 color plates this is a scholarly work that explores the self-presentation of some elite members of late Saite (26th Dynasty) Egypt. This study examines the biographies and statues of two individuals who were principal members of the non-royal aristocracy. The approach integrates images, monuments, and texts with the places, participants and broader historical environment that gives them meaning. Ultimately, the goal is to bridge the gap between image and text.
