LEATHERWORK FROM ELEPHANTINE (ASWAN, EGYPT): ANALYSIS AND CATALOGUE OF THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN & PERSIAN LEATHER FINDS. Andre J. Veldmeijer. Sidestone Press, Leiden, 2017. 186 pp. with 200 ills. (100 col.). ISBN 9789088903793 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 175191. Publisher's description: 'Leatherwork from Elephantine' describes, illustrates and analyses the finds from the excavations at Elephantine island (Aswan, Egypt) that are conducted by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), in collaboration with the Swiss Institute for Architectural and Archaeological Research on Ancient Egypt (SI). The majority of the finds are dated to periods well after the pharaonic era (4th century AD onwards), save for a few finds from the New Kingdom and the Middle Kingdom. The majority of finds are sandals and shoes. Most important for leatherwork/footwear studies, however, is the footwear from the Persian layers (6th-5th c. BC), which is distinctly different from ancient Egyptian leatherwork. Ample attention will be given to this important group.
