Welcome to my homepage, which is also the official website of the Ancient Egyptian Footwear Project (AEFP) and the Ancient Egyptian Leatherwork Project (AELP). The Projects are described here in detail, including the objectives, methodology and researchers. It includes also a list of publications related to these Projects as well as images of (some of) the objects.

The intention is to update this site on a regular basis. If you want to keep informed on the developments you can submit your email address.

This site has no options to contact me. Instead, you can contact me with queries, suggestions and the like through email:

I am grateful to Ilja Nieuwland for his help with this website and thank Mikko Kriek and Erno Endenburg for their permission to publish their drawings.
