Both teams are now on site at Amara West and regular reports are appearing on the blog.  Neal Spencer of the British Museum is reporting on his teams work excavating houses, and in particular the unusual E13.7.  This is a radially organised house, unlike most of the other excavated which have an axial plan.  It is also a neighbour of the Residence of the Deputy of Kush, suggesting that its owner was also a man of considerable importance.  There is also a painted wall motif.

Meanwhile Michaela Binder of Durham University is providing commentary on her team's excavation of the cemeteries, this year mostly cemetery D.
