Ten years after the Red Sea III conference: "Natural Resources and Cultural Connections of the Red Sea", held at the British Museum on 27–28 October 2006, enough new data has been made available to warrant another in-depth look at the archaeology of natural resources extraction and processing (mines, workshops, etc.)



The main themes of the conference are:

  • economic significance of commerce in natural resources passing through the Red Sea

  • intermediaries in the natural resources trade (“Who dun’it”)

  • other archaeological categories coexistent with the natural resources trade (pottery, glass etc.)

  • language/epigraphy: terms for natural resources: mining and processing/crafts work

  • ethnoarchaeological evidence for exploitation and processing of natural resource
