Harrell, James A. 2017. A Preliminary Overview of Ancient Egyptian Stone Beads. – PalArch’s Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology 14(2) (tEBP Series) (2017), 1-16. ISSN 1567-214X. 16 pages + 2 tables.

Stone beads are one of the most common artifacts of ancient Egypt, but despite this they have received little attention from scholars. The first and only attempt at a comprehensive study is the late 1930’s investigation of Nai Xia, who looked at beads in all materials at what is now the Petrie Museum of Egyptian […]

Christophe Hendrickx & Matthew T. Carrano. 2016. Erratum on “An Overview of Non-Avian Theropod Discoveries and Classification”. – PalArch’s Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology 13, 2 (2016), 1-7. ISSN 1567-2158. 7 pages, 1 figure, 1 table.

In their recent publication on an overview of theropod discoveries and classification, Hendrickx and colleagues mistakenly attributed the earliest historical reports of non-avian theropods in North America and South America to Joseph Leidy in 1856 and Florentino Ameghino in 1899, respectively. Yet, theropod tracks from Massachusetts had already been reported by Hitchcock in 1836, and […]

Quantifying heterodonty in the late Devonian (Upper Famennian) sharks Cladoselache and Ctenacanthus from the Ohio Shale, USA. – PalArch’s Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology 13, 1 (2016), 1-20. ISSN 1567-2158. 20 pages + 5 plates, 7 figures.

Differentiation of tooth size and shape within the jaw (i.e. heterodonty) is an expected pattern in the majority of Neoselachii sharks. Various forms of heterodonty may be observed within an individual set of jaws, which can be the result of tooth position (monognathic), upper or lower jaw position (dignathic), tooth file or developmental position (ontogeny), […]

Krauss, Rolf. With a Contribution by Victor Reijs. 2012. Babylonian Crescent Observation and Ptolemaic-Roman Lunar Dates. – Palarch’s Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology 9(5) (2012), 1-95. ISSN 1567-214X. 95 pages + 28 figures, 62 tables, 2 appendices.

Abstract This article considers three question associated with Ptolemaic-Roman lunar chronology: did the temple service begin on Lunar Day 2; were lunar phases determined by observation and/or cyclically; how accurate were lunar observations? In the introduction, Babylonian and modern observations of old and new crescents are analyzed to obtain empirical visibility lines applicable to Egyptian […]
