Those of you who visit this site have probably seen that there's a new progress report from the Brooklyn Museum in the feed shown in the sidebar. For benefit of those who have missed it, it's worth taking a look. They are also intending to go down below Ptolemaic period this year in the important area near the Taharqa Gate.
One of our goals this year is to find out what lies under the Ptolemaic or early
Roman Period houses that fill the area west of the Taharqa Gate. On January 25
we laid out a new square that spans the width of the gate and Mamdouh and his
team got right to work.
There are also some nice photos of ovens discovered during their investigations. If you are interested, the full update from 30th January is here.
