Soldiers, Sailors and Sandalmakers. A Social Reading of Ramesside Period Votive Stelae (London: Golden House Publications) ISBN 978-1-906137-10-6 £30
I’m back in after my break to the good news that my book is out…
The book looks at how votive stelae from five Ramesside period sites, including Deir el-Medina, Abu Simbel and Pi-Ramesses, might be linked to specific events in the lives of the dedicators, from festival attendance, promotion at work and pleas for fertility, and act to commemorate for all eternity incidents of personal and social significance .
The front cover image is of stela dedicated by the Senior Scribe, Ramose, from Deir el-Medina, in the collection of The Manchester Museum.
