Excavating the Extra-Ordinary: Challenges & Merits of Working with Small Finds: Proceedings of the International Egyptological Workshop at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, 8–9 April 2019
The topic of the international workshop “Excavating the Extra-Ordinary. Challenges and merits of workings with small finds” was the challenging task of working with seemingly ‘ordinary’ small objects and their processing. On this occasion in April 2019 at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, experts from Egyptological excavations, museums and institutions presented and discussed current issues. The present volume offers contributions held at the workshop, including the handling of vast amounts of material, fragmentary finds and methodological questions. The diversity of the discussed materials covers pottery, wooden and bone artifacts, as well as metal objects. Another focus lies on the scientific evaluation of insufficient early documentations and disturbed find contexts.
