Abstract

In the winter/spring of 2013 a new project was initiated
by the lead author in the region of Merimde Beni Salama:
the Imbaba Governorate Prehistoric Survey. This interdisciplinary survey focussed along the western Nile Delta desert edge, from the registered archaeological site of Merimde Beni Salama in the south, northwards to the modern town of el-Khatatbah and the el-Ahmes quarry area. This survey developed from previous research in the region by the EES Minufiyeh Archaeological Survey, when members of the team first visited the region in 2008. A second study season was also undertaken in in the winter of 2014, and the third in autumn 2014; the results of the latter are not included here.
