A Corpus of Nineteenth Dynasty Egyptian Pottery from Zawiyet Umm El-Rakham

Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary results of research on the Nineteenth Dynasty Egyptian pottery corpus from the fort of Zawiyet Umm el-Rakham, located 300 km west of Alexandria within ancient Libya (Tjemeh). It focuses on defining typical shapes and characteristics of the assemblage, as well as investigating its possible origins. It presents the results of a portable X-ray fluorescence analysis of the Egyptian pottery and concludes that approximately 44% of the Egyptian-style pottery is of non-Nilotic origin, most likely locally sourced.
