Archéo-Nil articles are now available on Persée using the links above or directly on the Persée platform


Founded in 1990 by Béatrix Midant-Reynes, Archéo-Nil journal is devoted to the prehistory and protohistory of the Nile valley.

Its fields of interest cover a very broad chronology, from the first Neolithic communities to the emergence of complex societies, in an equally wide geographical area, from the Mediterranean to the sources of the Nile, and in the peripheral desert regions.

It lies at the crossroads of various disciplines such as prehistory, Egyptology, archaeology, anthropology and ethnology. Archéo-Nil is a journal intended for specialists but is also intended for the exchange of ideas between the actors of the different disciplines concerned and a much wider public.

Each year, Archéo-Nil publishes an issue, often with a thematic focus, containing summary articles, information notes, reviews of scientific works or conferences, as well as a bibliography of recently published volumes and articles. The contributions are written in French and English by international specialists.

The journal is available in all libraries and research centres related to the world of Egyptology and Near Eastern prehistory. The editorial board of the journal is assisted by a scientific committee of internationally renowned Egyptologists, prehistorians and archaeologists.
