    Ein neuer Artikel in der PLOS ONE beschäftigt sich mit den Feuerstein-Minen von Wadi-el-Sheikh und ihrer organisierten Nutzung. Er basiert auf den archäologischen Erkundungen, die von der Uni Wien in Ägypten voran getrieben werden:

    Wadi el-Sheikh: A new archaeological investigation of ancient Egyptian chert mines
    Abstract:
    "This article provides an overview of the first results from archaeological investigations at Wadi el-Sheikh in Egypt by the University of Vienna Middle Egypt Project. Chert was an important raw material used to produce tools, implements and jewelry in ancient times. Wadi el-Sheikh was exploited over thousands of years as it was probably the most important source of chert in Pharaonic civilization. The results of our new investigations that involved surveys and test excavations indicate the presence of large scale mining activities in the first half of the 3rd Millennium B.C.E. which allow for detailed insights into the amount of raw material extracted, the mining methods used and the lithic products manufactured in this area. These aspects are contextualized on the background of ancient Egyptian state-organized resource acquisition strategies and economy."
