Archaeological excavation and analysis at Tell Edfu in Upper Egypt, between Luxor and Aswan. (36 months)

The remains of what once had been the provincial capital of the second Upper Egyptian nome can be found at Tell Edfu, which is one of the best-preserved ancient towns in Egypt. This site is one of the rare examples where almost three thousand years of ancient Egyptian history are still preserved in the stratigraphy of a single site and therefore provides enormous potential for increasing our understanding of ancient urbanism in Egypt, a topic that is still poorly understood since it relies almost entirely on archaeological data. The excavations at Tell Edfu provide an abundance of completely new data, thus shedding a fresh light on the development and character of a naturally grown urban center and the relation to its hinterland.
