The authors of all manuscripts in this monograph were specifically invited for papers that would provide new insights into the complex nature of maritime networks, particularly the importance of the seas and coastlines, whether for purposes of defense, trade, prestige, or technological advance. Because seafaring has been such a critical aspect of Egyptian life throughout its history, it is fitting that the works in JAEI 5:1 span from the Predynastic through the Classical periods. While all three of the primary bodies of water in the Egyptian world are covered (the Nile River, the Mediterranean, and the Red Sea), readers will notice an emphasis on the Nile Delta region.

The work carries research articles by John Tristan Barnes, University of Missouri; Jeffrey P. Emanuel, Harvard University; Samuel Mark, Texas A&M University at Galveston; and Gregory Mumford, University of Alabama at Birmingham. It also features extended research reports from David Fabre and Franck Goddio, Institut Européen d'Archéologie Sous-Marine; Pierre Tallet, Université Paris-Sorbonne; and Sakuji Yoshimura and Hiromasa Kurokochi, Waseda University and NPO Institute of the Solar Boat.

Finally, three recently published books and monographs are reviewed by Steven Sidebotham, University of Delaware; Chiara Zazzaro, University of Naples "L'Orientale"; and the JAEI Staff. All manuscripts were submitted to the journal's standard process of double peer review, and JAEI is grateful to the reviewers who volunteered their time and expertise.
