On behalf of the editorial board, we are pleased to offer the SHEDET publication (An annual peer-reviewed publication published by the Faculty of Archaeology, Fayoum University, and covered by Scopus since 2018). With this academic journal, we are ushering in a new era of scientific publication of Heritage and Archaeology in Egypt, with the goal of reaching people all over the world and being rated according to worldwide criteria of excellence.
Each SHEDET issue brings us joy and challenge; joy in being able to supply our readers with a volume of selected and refereed intellectual contributions, and challenge in trying to continue this magazine and provide publications of worldwide standard. Of course, assistance from scholars and researchers in the fields of heritage and archaeology from across the world is required to continue and sustain production of this publication. The continuation of this magazine is critical because it is one of the few academically peer-reviewed journals dedicated to archaeology in Egypt.
The SHEDET Journal focuses on many elements of ancient Egyptian, Islamic, and Coptic archaeology, conservation, museology, and heritage (including language, literature, history, art, and related themes) prior to the modern period. Its mission is to publish research that contributes to the expansion of knowledge or the progress of academic interpretation.
Finally, we would like to thank all contributors to the successful publishing of this high-quality research journal for their support and collegial collaboration and express our wishes for many successful issues in the future. We must also appreciate the entire editorial staff, language editor, and advisory board for their contributions.
