Bringing you the latest research

Volume 106 of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology published

In January 2021, the 106th volume of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology was sent to subscribers around the world. As usual, members of the EES subscribing to the Journal are the first to receive copies both online and in-print and we hope that you enjoy this double-dose of the JEA!

Thanks to the tireless work of the Editor-in-Chief, Dr Claudia Näser, and the Managing Editor of the JEA, Dr Stephanie Boonstra, four issues of the JEA were produced in 2020 despite significant setbacks caused by the global health crisis. The Society is especially grateful to them both for seeing the Journal through such difficult times and increasing productivity during the year. We are also grateful to all colleagues who supported the JEA through giving their expertise in peer reviews, supplied book reviews and acted as mentors in the MESA scheme. Their readiness to contribute keeps the JEA going.

2020 also saw the launch of the JEA Mentoring for Egyptian and Sudanese Authors (MESA) Scheme which helps Egyptian and Sudanese authors to benefit from mentoring by renowned international experts in respective topics, supporting them in their scientific output, while also reflecting the global networks of Egyptological research today. The MESA scheme is funded by contributions made by Patron supporters of the Egypt Exploration Society and we are grateful to them for their generous help. The first two papers published through the MESA Scheme will appear Online First early in 2021 and will be printed in volume 107 later in the year.
