Coutumes funéraires en Nubie au Nouvel Empire

Abstract : This paper deals with the question of the egyptianisation of Nubia during the New Kingdom from the viewpoint of funerary practices.
By recording and studying Nubian graves inasmuch as they have been recorded as Egyptian ones when discovered, it would appear that the only typical features of Egyptian burial customs are: the shape of the grave, the extended position of the body, and the presence of certain specific objects included among the burial furniture, when it still exists, especially coffins, canopic jars, shabtis, etc., the whole of them relating to Egyptian mortuary ritual. The location and frequency of these typical finds have been recorded ; so, it appears that two sites of Upper Nubian, namely Saï and Soleb, situated between the 2nd and the 3rd cataracts, are of special and meaningful interest.
