  Abstract: Late Bronze Age Aegean Ceramics in the Nile Valley: An Analysis of Idea and Practice as Represented in the Archaeological Record, Beth Ann Judas, MA, PhD (University of Pennsylvania, 2010) Research Interests: Mycenaean Ceramics, New Kingdom Egypt, New Kingdom Nubia, Ceramics, imported ceramics, typology, distribution of imported ceramics The dissertation discusses Egypto-Aegean trade and exchange relations, the chronology and fluctuations of Late Bronze Age Aegean ceramic material in the New Kingdom Nile Valley, and the inferences that may be drawn from LBA Aegean ceramics and Egyptian ceramic preferences. The discussion of the Late Bronze Age (LBA) Aegean ceramic corpus includes the distribution of LBA ceramics in the Nile Valley, as well as  possible models for the relationships and exchange practices between the Nile Valley and the Aegean. The research contains a database of LBA Aegean pottery from the New Kingdom  Nile Valley (Egypt and Nubia). The database was created in FileMaker Pro, and includes such information as Furumark Shape (if known, or a more general shape, if not), Furumark Motif, excavation site (if known), or museum collection, date, publication, etc. The database material ranges in date from LM I to LH III/LM III. A catalog of general Furumark Shapes (FS) in the Nile Valley is included to assist in the identification of vessel shapes, which may be found in Egypt and Nubia. The Late Bronze Age Aegean ceramics exported to Egypt and Nubia indicate trade and diplomatic relations between the Aegean and Nile Valley. Diplomatic gift exchange and mercantile interactions were tempered by Egyptian cultural, economic, and  political factors. Individual preference drove the selection of certain commodities that  the ceramic shapes may have contained and influenced the ceramic forms chosen for display or feasting. Gift exchange, acquisition of tribute, royal trade, and private exchange were all mechanisms behind the Egyptian acquisition of Aegean ceramics.
