Le présent volume rassemble les résultats des dix premières années de fouilles archéologiques espagnoles menées dans la nécropole de Qoubbet el-Hawa. Il s'ouvre sur un aperçu historique de la province la plus méridionale de l'Égypte dans l'Antiquité afin de contextualiser les vestiges funéraires découverts à Qoubbet el-Hawa. Suit une description historique et archéologique de la découverte des vestiges de la nécropole par différents chercheurs et le programme de recherche mis en œuvre par la présente mission espagnole pour développer son projet multidisciplinaire. Le volume comprend en outre plusieurs axes subsidiaires de recherche axés sur la conservation du site et le développement local à partir de la valorisation du patrimoine. L’un des apports majeurs du présent ouvrage est la publication des résultats historiques et archéologiques réalisés sur le site et mis à jour par les dernières publications faites par l’équipe multidisciplinaire en charge du projet.

This book presents the results of the first ten years of Spanish archaeological excavations in the necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa. It opens with an outline of the history of the southernmost province of Egypt in Antiquity, in order to contextualize the funerary remains found in Qubbet el-Hawa. This is followed by a historic and archaeological description of the discovery of Qubbet el-Hawa by various scholars and of the research programme carried out by the current Spanish mission to develop its multidisciplinary project. The volume also includes subsidiary lines of research, focusing on the conservation of the site and the local development resulting from the valorisation of this heritage. One of the main contributions of the present work is the publication of the historical and archaeological results, updated and reinterpreted, together with the latest works produced by the multidisciplinary team.

REVIEWS
‘The publication of this new data is very important for the knowledge of this period and region of Egypt. … All specialists in the pharaonic period and in particular the Middle Kingdom will be interested.’ Dr Gwenola Graff, Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD - France)

‘The ten years of work carried out in the Qubbet el-Hawa necropolis highlight the use of advanced technologies at the disposal of Egyptology. … The multidisciplinary work of the Jaén mission … is an example to follow in the analysis of ancient Egyptian heritage. … The results of the epigraphic study shed a particularly new light on the political history of the Elephantine region, which is of great interest to the scientific community.’ Dr Gersande Eschenbrenner Diemer, Institute of Archaeology, University College London

‘Previous publications [of material from this site] do not achieve the comprehensive and complete view adopted and offered in this book. … [It] brings new ideas on the configuration of regional power during the Twelfth Dynasty. Such a re-evaluation of the political, economic, and social developments in the site will be welcome.’ Prof. Antonio J. Morales, Universidad de Alcalá
