1994-95 ANNUAL REPORT
Carol Meyer's personal research projects during 1994/95 consisted primarily of publications. The Journal of Roman Archaeology requested an article on the 1992 and 1993 seasons at Bir Umm Fawakhir, the Byzantine gold-mining town in the central eastern desert of Egypt that has been explored by the Oriental Institute. The article should appear in September 1995. For the Journal of Near Eastern Studies , Meyer prepared reviews of Sur les routes antiques de l'Azanie et de l'Inde , by Desanges, Stern, and Ballet; and Studies in Early Egyptian Glass , by Lilyquist and Brill. A review of Early Glass of the Ancient World , by Stern and Schlick-Nolte, is in progress. A contribution to the Martha Bell memorial volume on a baboon amulet from Ishchali was completed and, along with the rest of the volume, is in press. The report on the 1992 season at Bir Umm Fawakhir appeared in the 1994 volume of Annual of the American Schools of Oriental Research , and the report on the 1993 season has been submitted for publication. In autumn 1994, Meyer also presented a paper on both seasons' work at Bir Umm Fawakhir at the fall Byzantine Conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan and taught an Oriental Institute members' course on "Oases and Deserts of Egypt."
