"The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture" (01 / 2016. - PDF, 40 MB. - 127 p.)

Quote:
The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture is a scientific, open access and annual periodical. Its purpose is to promote the publication of research devoted to Ancient Egyptian architecture (domestic, civil, military, ritual/religious and funerary), from the Predynastic Period to the Roman imperial era, whatever the modern geographical context (Egypt, Sudan, Near East, etc). The subject scope includes everything relating to construction, regardless of its original importance or purpose.

The journal publishes fieldwork reports and studies undertaken in the Egyptological tradition, including discussions of epigraphy and iconography, but also work that utilizes specific skills such as structural and materials sciences, or modern investigative techniques. ...

Content:

01. The use of the ‘ceremonial’ cubit rod as a measuring tool. An explanation

02. Varieties and sources of sandstone used in Ancient Egyptian temples

03. Biography of a Great Pyramid Casing Stone

04. A look through his window: the sanctuary of the divine Apis Bull at Memphis

05. Les constructions axiales thoutmosides devant le 4e pylōne de Karnak

Greetings, Lutz.

3- Biography of a Casing Stone - Interesting read about the creation of individual casing stones, how they were measured and shaped. I never knew cubits were so big. I read some papyri before mentioning cubits, but had no reference point to how big they are. The Great Pyramid was 280 cubits tall. The article also provides a nice explanation of how they measured Pi and incorporated that into the dimensions of the pyramid. Nice read, looking forward to the others.
