‘IREP EN KEMET’ PROJECT: DOCUMENTING THE CORPUS OF WINE IN ANCIENT EGYPT

Maria Rosa Guasch Jané, Sofia Fonseca, Mahmoud Ibrahim

Presented are the research objectives of the project ‘Irep en Kemet’, Wine of Ancient Egypt, and the content of the website. This research project aims at documenting the complete corpus of wine in ancient Egypt and analysing the data (iconography, textual sources and artefacts) to unveil the importance of the ancient Egyptian wine culture legacy in the Mediterranean region.

At this stage, a bibliographical researchable database relevant to wine, viticulture and winemaking in the ancient Egypt has been completed, a scene-detail database for the viticulture and winemaking scenes in the Egyptian tombs has been recorded, and the collected data will be studied and analysed. Our main goal is to provide scholars with a complete, comprehensive archaeological and bibliographical database for the scenes of viticulture and winemaking depicted in the Egyptian tombs throughout the ancient Egyptian history. The project’s website (under construction) will include all the collected data, the study and analysis, as well as the results of our research.
