Abstract

This fieldwork report presents the results of the ground survey phase of fieldwork of the Minufiyeh Archaeological Survey during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. These seasons also saw the continuation of investigations into the cemetery and Sacred Falcon Necropolis at the Quesna archaeological area and into the archaeological remains at Kom el-Ahmar, Minuf. The 2008 season saw the first visit of the ground survey to the region between el-Khatatbah and Kafr Dawud, west of the Rosetta branch of the Nile, as well as further investigation into sites across the province and the continuation of the drill core survey. In 2009 the ground survey returned to the desert edge in the vicinity of el-Khatatbah for a focussed survey investigating early encampments and settlements along the desert edge.
