1999-2000 ANNUAL REPORT
Although Carol Meyer's research time was curtailed due to a death in the family, she brought several projects to conclusion. She submitted a report on the Bir Umm Fawakhir 1999 season to the National Geographic Society and another on the construction of a protective barricade at the site to the Egyptian Antiquities Project; the latter will become a chapter in the final report. She also checked the final galleys of the report on the 1993 Bir Umm Fawakhir season for the Oriental Institute Communications series, and, looking forward, started planning and preparation for a projected 2001 study season. She also wrote reviews of Mons Claudianus 1987-1993: Topography and Quarries for the Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists and Excavations at ed-Dur (Umm al-Qaiwain, UAE): The Glass for the Journal of Near Eastern Studies and drafted the chapter on the history of east Indian glass for the reissue of the Forbes ancient technology series. In December Carol presented a talk on "Beyond the Valley of the Gilded Mummies: Some Context for the Recent Finds at Bahariyah Oasis" to the Society of Woman Geographers.
