2019 Grant Co-Recipient with Bruce Williams
The Oriental Institute Nubian Expedition Publication Project (Hosh el-Geruf, al-Widay and the Island of Umm Gebir)
Lisa A. Heidorn has worked with Bruce Williams on the Oriental Institute’s Nubian Expedition project off and on since 1983, as an artist and doing paste-up. She recently completed a forthcoming excavation report on the island fortress of Dorginarti, which was part of the 1964 Oriental Institute excavations during the Aswan High Dam Salvage Campaign. She is currently working on the Meroitic and Christian materials from Dorginarti, and has begun the preliminary work for publishing the Oriental Institute’s Fourth Cataract salvage excavations, which were conducted by Geoff Emberling and Bruce Williams in 2007 and 2008. Her main research interests lie in the historical interactions between Egypt, Sudan and the Near East in the first millennium BCE, and the seriation of Egyptian pottery and the contemporary development of Nubian handmade pottery during the Third Intermediate and Proto-Kushite Periods. She is currently Research Associate of the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology at the University of Warsaw and Associate at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.
