DATABASE FOR THE SCENES OF VITICULTURE AND WINEMAKING IN ANCIENT EGYPT
The “Irep en Kemet”, Wine of Ancient Egypt, research project aims to study the ancient Egyptian wine culture, including iconography, texts, artifacts and organic material.
After four years of work, our research group has developed the first complete database of the viticulture and winemaking scenes from the Ancient Egyptian private tombs.
The bibliographic and scenes databases of the ‘Irep en Kemet’ project will also be an on-line documentation archive contributing to the dissemination and protection of the Egyptian heritage.
The project’s website promotes visibility to the study of wine in ancient Egypt and the dissemination of archaeological knowledge regarding wine in Antiquity.
