Center for the Tebtunis Papyri

The Bancroft Library at Berkeley is the custodian of a very large (and as yet mostly unstudied) collection of papyri from Umm el-Breigat (ancient Tebtunis). Conservation, digitization, and study of the collection is organized through the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri (Director and Curator, Professor Todd Hickey).  With small additions from other sites, the collection now contains pieces in Middle Egyptian hieratic, Greek, Latin, Egyptian Demotic, Coptic, and Arabic. Graduate Student Research Assistantships and travel grants are available, and undergraduates also may participate through the University Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP).
