Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean XXV, Research, Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw 2016


The results of Polish archaeological excavations carried out in 2014 and 2015 on sites in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Near East, from Cyprus to Sudan and from Egypt to Armenia, are presented in a series of 27 articles and a chronicle listing all the projects of the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology University of Warsaw. Reports detailing the excavations are supplemented by comprehensive studies of different categories of material culture as well as the nature sciences (anthropology, archaeozoology and archaeobotanics).

The second part of the volume contains 10 research articles. Six studies take up issues of ancient pottery production and usage, as well as typology and ornamentation, from the Neolithic Gulf, through Hellenistic and Roman Phoenicia, to late antique Egypt and Nubia. Stone vessels from Islamic Bijan Island constitute a special case. Two articles present collections of beads and personal adornments from two sites in ancient Nubia: Sai and Zuma. This section of the volume opens with an article on the evolution of the architectural plan in the early Neolithic in the Near East, and ends with a study of Nubian master builders based on an architectural drawing on a wall painting from the medieval cathedral in Faras in Sudan.
