29 Jan 2010. This annual conference, organized by the American Research Center in Egypt, the Institute for Bio-archaeology and the American University in Cairo, reflects on the possibilities offered by human remains in ancient Egypt. Skeletal remains have historically played a marginal role in Egyptian archaeology, while recently researchers have realised their extraordinary value. In fact human remains offer a great range of information in many different areas of inquiry such as ancient lifestyles, behaviour, diet and nutrition, health and diseases, migration, demography, etc. In this edition CHRAE puts special emphasis on the importance of retaining excavated material for future study as well as on encouraging researchers and field directors to work together.

The conference lasts from 08.30-18.30.
