 Investir la paroi, marquer l’espace : (pré)histoires au Ouadi Hammamat

Formant une gorge naturelle de 6 km, les fameuses carrières du Ouadi Hammamat sont connues pour avoir été exploitées depuis la plus haute Antiquité pour la grauwacke, une pierre destinée à produire des objets de prestige. Par une approche multidimensionnelle, nous envisagerons les gravures rupestres du site – de la Préhistoire au début du Moyen Empire – pour ce qu’elles nous disent réflexivement des pratiques sous-jacentes. En se fondant notamment sur les archives de F. Debono, l’examen des traces archéologiques mises au jour sur place permettra de mettre en regard dynamiques humaines et investissements graphiques, afin d’éclairer un pan de l’histoire d’un espace dit de marge, mais que les Anciens ont investi matériellement, graphiquement et symboliquement.







Archéo-Nil celebrated its 30th birthday at the Musée d'Archéologie Nationale in Saint-Germain-en-Laye

For the 30th anniversary of the society, Archéo-Nil has organised an exceptional day at the National Archaeology Museum in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. The morning was devoted to lectures in the auditorium; it was an opportunity for the new generation of researchers working on Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt to present its work. The afternoon was devoted to workshops in the galleries of the museum with artefacts taken out of the cabinets for the occasion. They were visible in small groups, commented by the researchers. The photos of the day are available for members in their reserved area.

Early Egypt Bibliography (EEB)



For over 25 years, the “Bibliography of the Prehistory and the Early Dynastic period of Egypt and northern Sudan” has been the essential bibliographical research tool regarding the Prehistoric, Predynastic and Early Dynastic periods in Egypt and northern Sudan (up to the latitude of Khartoum). The original bibliography was published in 1995 by Stan Hendrickx, with yearly updates in the journal Archéo-Nil, from 2010 onwards in collaboration with Wouter Claes. With the generous aid and collaboration of the IFAO (Christian Gaubert) and Archéo-Nil (Yann Tristant), the EEB is now available as a freely accessible and online database at
