the Egyptian Bead Project (tEBP) aims to combine and share different research projects and Egyptian archaeological bead studies

We offer here a platform for bead researchers to publish their individual research projects, and in the future, more information about the projects will be presented. Below you will find a list of participating scholars. If you wish to receive further material about tEBP, about our publications, or if you wish to participate in any way, please contact us at or
