Since 2017, a workgroup on Egyptian Riverine Harbours has been created within the framework of a collaboration between the Österreichisches Archäologisches Institut - Cairo Branch (ÖAI), KU Leuven and the French Institute for Oriental Archaeology (IFAO) for its five-year plan (2017-2021). Two workshops have already taken place in 2017 and 2018. The aim of this reasearch program is to gain a better understanding of riverine harbours during Ancient Egypt, a topic which has seen an increase in popularity in recent research. We wish to make a first synthesis on the subject by analysing the features of riverine harbours, their function and their integration in the network of Egyptian waterways. To this end, we have brought together a group of specialists working on Egyptian fluvial harbours, the Nile, its canals and the irrigation system from the Pharaonic period up to the pre-modern times.

The symposium Egyptian Riverine Harbours will take place in Cairo at the Institut français d’archéologie orientale (IFAO) from September 15th to 18th 2019.
