AcrossBorders Project, Institute of Egyptology, LMU Munich

Areas of Expertise

Settlement patterns in Egypt and Nubia in the 2nd Millennium BC are the main fields of research of the archaeological project AcrossBorders (ERC Starting Grant no. 313668), currently hosted by LMU Munich and led by Professor Dr Julia Budka.

The multi-layered research of AcrossBorders with the application of interdisciplinary methods (geoarchaeology, zooarchaeology, scientific analyses like Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis, Strontium Isotope Analysis …) has the unique potential to provide information for reconstructing ancient lives, and to create a showcase study for settlement archaeology in Northeast Africa. AcrossBorders is currently conducting excavations at the sites of Sai Island (Sudan) and Elephantine (Egypt). The project’s team members come from Germany, Austria, Italy, India, the UK and the USA – Egyptologists, archaeologists, prehistorians and geoarchaeologists, together with external international experts, focus on multiple tasks to create a better understanding of daily life in the 2nd Millennium BC.
