Simultaneously with our fieldwork, processing of finds continues in the courtyard and the magazine of the dig house. The present focus is on the New Kingdom material coming from SAV1E, especially the pottery associated with Building A. The sherds arrive from the field at the house in baskets, arranged according to their archaeological context (square, level and location). The contents of each basket are separated in a first step into the Pharaonic and Post-Pharaonic material.
Our pottery team around Nicole and Vicky was strengthened today by Mohammed and Shazeli as the amounts of sherds to be documented have increased considerably in the last weeks. The pottery will keep us busy in the next weeks!
