Project description

The necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa holds the tombs of the elite of Elephantine, located just before the first cataract of the Nile. Numerous hieroglyphic inscriptions dating from the Old Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period (ca. 2800-332 BC) have been found in this region bordering Upper Egypt and Lower Nubia. This unique condition allows the opportunity to carry out a regional study on diachronic development of the Egyptian official language in order to understand its use as a lingua franca for intercourse between Egyptian and Nubian high societies. Furthermore, it purports to identify local differences regarding the use of the Egyptian official language in other areas of Egypt. Finally, this project will contribute to clarify the role played by the Egyptian official language in the acculturation process involving Egyptian and Nubian societies around the first cataract of the Nile.
