New Excavations at Edfu

There is a new lecture been uploaded  if you have been wondering what is going on there.

Presented by Nadine Moeller, Associate Professor of Egyptian
Archaeology, Oriental Institute (and Gregory Marouard, Research Associate,
Oriental Institute)

The Origins of Two Provincial Capitals in Upper Egypt: The Two Sister-Sites
of Tell Edfu and Dendara

The ongoing fieldwork at Tell Edfu has recently focused on the excavation of
a settlement quarter dating to the 3rd millennium BCE which pushes back the
origins of the town of Edfu to the 4th Dynasty (ca. 2550 BCE). The newest
addition to the Oriental Institute’s fieldwork program in Egypt, at the
ancient provincial capital of Dendara, has also led to new insights into the
oldest settlement remains and the original foundation of this city. This
lecture will provide an overview of the most recent results from both sites
offering a comparative perspective on the long-term development of early
urban centers in southern Egypt.
