MKS is a peer-reviewed series with an advisory board of international renowned scholars, and from 2018 has been indexed by Scopus/Elsevier. MKS is published by Golden House Publications and distributed worldwide. The series encompasses all aspects of the Middle Bronze Age in Egypt, 2050-1550 BC. MKS has two aims: to provide, within a focussed editorial structure, new directions and impetus for the Middle Kingdom research; and to create a discussion space for both established and emerging scholars, who wish to publish new ideas, research, and findings relating to this period. The series also aims to go beyond a geographical segmentation of ancient history of Egypt, opening the field beyond its geographical borders, encouraging the submission of studies on Nubian, Mediterranean, and Near Eastern topics relating to thae Middle Kingdom timeframe, and to Egypt.
The volume includes 22 essays on Middle Kingdom and Second Intermediate Period Egypt, ranging from archaeological records to written sources, from prosopography to landscape studies. Several contributions focus on object study, including coffins, stelae, shells, toilet objects, headdresses, and weapons . The articles include a high number of first time published objects.

(Middle Kingdom Studies 11)
The personal adornments and objects from the burial of Queen Ahhotep belong to one of the most spectacular finds from Ancient Egypt. The history of their discovery is still a mystery. Even the identity of the queen is not fully solved. The twelve essays in this volume tackle different problems around the objects from the tomb of the queen.

Morales and Mohamed Osman, Individual and Zeitgeist : Textual and Iconographic Selections in the Chapel of Harhotep (CG 28023)
This book explores the organisation of labour in Egypt during the Middle Kingdom (ca. 2050–1700 BCE) through a combination of written sources (main source: the Lahun Papyri) and archaeological evidence. Major lines of inquiry are the social profile and human activity of those strata of society liable to conscription, type of employments and temporality of work, management and administrative procedures in labour organisation. The written sources and archaeological record are first examined in two independent chapters. Then in the final chapters the results reached by the separate study of the different types of evidence are combined and compared by subject matter in order to identify patterns of outcome.

Change and Innovation in Middle Kingdom Art. Proceedings of the MeKeTRE Study Day held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna (3rd May 2013)
(Middle Kingdom Studies 4)
Abstract & Index
The creativity of artistic production during the Middle Kingdom is vast and highly appreciated, but still far from fully understood. The studies presented in this volume aim to present this extraordinary output of two and three-dimensional artworks in a critical reevaluation of old ideas and convictions while advancing new methods and exchanging ideas. The core of “Change and Innovation” is looking at traditions, seeking answers to changes, and hoping to provide a better understanding of the concept of the salient characteristics of Middle Kingdom art.

Birth Tusks: the Armoury of Health in Context – Egypt 1800 BC
including publication of Petrie Museum examples photographed by Gianluca Miniaci, and drawn from photographs by Andrew Boyce
(Middle Kingdom Studies 3)
One highly distinctive ancient Egyptian product is the hippopotamus tusk section, incised with series of divine forms to protect mother and child. Here the “birth tusks” are explored in five movements: linear description of Petrie Museum examples; contexts from pre-2000 excavations; corpus of pre-1973 acquisitions; comparison with late Middle Kingdom iconography, and then with material of other periods. Closing reflections on wider research horizons address the problems posed by the narrow chronological and social distribution of an object type.
