A couple months ago, I had a presentation about the reconstruction of Pi-Ramesse in Berlin, together with the excavator Henning Franzmeier. The lecture, that was organised by the Berliner Antiken Kolleg, was recorded and is now available on YouTube. If you speak German, you can listen and look at it right here.
This year, the excavations in Qantir/Pi-Ramesse get 40 years old. This is a remarkable age for an excavation in our days and so the Roemer-Pelizaeus-Museum in Hildesheim decided to celebrate this today. The whole day is filled with a programme where you can listen to the former excavator Edgar B. Pusch as well as the […]

In an article published in the series Orientalia Lovaniensa Analecta, Henning Franzmeier wrote about the secondary function of pottery. This case study used the ceramic assemblage from a Ramesside well near Qantir-Piramesse in the Eastern Nile Delta in Egypt. The visualisation of the well was made in 2008 and you can read about it here. […]
