As artifacts travel from the ground to the consumer in the marketplace, recent research has shown that there are multiple stakeholders with competing claims in the legal trade in antiquities. In Israel it is legal to buy and sell artifacts from legally sanctioned dealers, if the collections pre-date the 1978 national ownership law. Not all aspects of this trade are legal, however, and not all participants have an equal voice. Read more »

Studies of ancient urbanism readily recognize the role of regional and interregional interaction processes in the development and sustenance of urbanism. Although ancient trade and immigration were inherent in the origins of urban society archaeologists have often attributed the rise of origins of urbanism to non-local often foreigner initiatives. Dr. Chap Kusimba of the Field Museum of Natural History will discuss his ongoing archaeological investigations on the rise, sustenance, and demise of ancient cities of East Africa. Read more »

Since the discovery in the 1930s of enigmatic wall murals at the type site of Tulaylat al-Ghassul, Jordan, archaeologists have debated how to interpret them.  Evidence from iconography and imagery such as this, and from more recent excavations in the southern Levant (Israel, Jordan, and Palestine) suggests a florescence of ritual practices during the Chalcolithic Period (4500-3600 BC).  Yorke Rowan, Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, will present recent fieldwork that documents a late prehistoric era when novel symbols, rituals and paraphernalia are focused on intensified concerns a Read more »

Two Egyptian mummies have been part of the Milwaukee Public Museum’s collections since 1887. They were first CT-scanned in 1986 at the instigation of curator Carter Lupton. That project involved other specialists and indirectly led to the formation of the Akhmim Mummy Studies Consortium, a collaboration that has examined nearly 20 mummies from Akhmim thus far, from collections spread across the country and the globe.  Lupton will share the history of this ongoing study, including more recent examinations and analyses of the MPM mummies.

Dr. Jeff Kowalski, Northern Illinois University, will discuss the development of a recent "tradition" of wood carving in northwest Yucatán.  He will focus on the work of several artisans who supplement their income (primarily derived from work as guardians or guides at local archaeological sites such as Kabah, Labna, or Sayil) by creating expertly crafted and aesthetically engaging wood sculptures. These artworks are inspired by, and often based closely on images from Classic Maya stelae, lintels, and ceramics, or Postclassic painted manuscripts. Read more »
