The UCL Lahun Papyri: Accounts
Mark Collier, Stephen Quirke
Archaeopress, 2006 - Social Science - 339 pages
This volume completes the presentation of all University College London's Lahun papyri. Over half of the great mass of papyrus fragments retrieved by Petrie from the Middle-Kingdom town-site near al-Lahun (Fayum region) comprises administrative records and the authors have divided the analyses into items for which Petrie-Griffith lot numbers are known, items for which Petrie-Griffith lot numbers are not known, and items of less determinate content not included in other series. The work includes a CD showing colour photographs of the original material.
