The Museo Egizio is organizing an international workshop (8th to 10th October 2018) which aims to highlight ongoing research on Deir el-Medina, focusing on the history of the archaeological excavations and recent field activities as well as the investigation of written and non-written material culture. The format is a workshop with a focus on discussions and exchange rather than extensive lectures. Therefore, presentations are limited to max. 15 minutes and provide a basis for further discussion. Forty papers and seven poster presentations will cover themes such as: Archaeology, History of Art, Philology, History, Archaeometry, Archive Studies, Village Life etc.

Listeners who wish to participate in the discussions are very welcome and can purchase tickets from Monday 30 July until Friday 21 September 2018 on:
