Aromatic importation in Egypt

I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation to help me study.

 

For this Article Analysis 2, you will be reading the following article:

Creasman, Pearce Paul, and Kei Yamamoto. 2019 (see attached file) African Archaeological Review 36: 347-365.

Answer the following questions in ~250 words each (1000 words total). Follow the same citation structure as you used for class exams (included below). You only need to cite the focus article once near the beginning of each answer, although if you use quotes or paraphrases you will need to cite them with the appropriate page number.

  1. What aromatics were imported from Nubia, Punt and Libya, and how were they obtained? What are some of the complexities in identifying the specific aromatics used from the available evidence?
  2. What is the history of aromatic importation in Egypt? What kinds of archaeological, textual and iconographic evidence are available, and during what time periods is evidence first found? Are there time periods in which Egypt wasn’t able to import aromatics?
  3. Why were aromatics important for Egyptians? What were they used for? Can they be considered a luxury commodity? What role did access to aromatics play in politics in Ancient Egypt?
  4. In what ways did societies in Nubia and Punt influence Egyptian religion and culture due to their control over access to aromatics?

Citation
Article analysis papers should use author-date parenthetical citations. If you are unfamiliar with this format, you can learn about it here https://researchguides.uoregon.edu/citing-plagiarism/apa.Links to an external site. You do not need to append a bibliography to your paper as the course syllabus serves as the bibliography for work completed in this class.
