Seminar"Le cimetière de Jebel Sahaba (site 117, Nubie) : nouvel examen des traces de violences interpersonnelles"

by Isabelle Crevecoeur

The next webinar (in French) will take place on Friday 8th October 2021 from 1 to 2pm. Isabelle Crevecoeur (chargée de Recherche au CNRS. UMR 5199 PACEA, Université de Bordeaux) will present her research on the archaeological excavation of Jebel Sahaba, a prehistoric cemetery dating from the Upper Paleolithic.

The bones of 61 individuals buried in the Jebel Sahaba cemetery in Nubia provide unique evidence for the emergence of violence in the late Pleistocene of the Nile Valley, during a period of severe environmental stress. Microscopic analysis of bone lesions and re-evaluation of the archaeological context provide evidence of sporadic and repeated interpersonal violence with projectile weapons at least 13,000 years ago.

The video of this seminar will be available for members after the seminar in their reserved area










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
