Tell Edfu, Egypt

Since 2001, Nadine Moeller and Gregory Marouard have been directing a major excavation project at Tell Edfu, which was the provincial capital of the second Upper Egyptian Province. This project has combined survey and excavation to explore the urban structure of the 6 hectare settlement during the late third and early second millennia BC. The project has provided crucial new evidence to improve understanding of ancient Egyptian administration and urban life.
