Making Progress

Despite some attacks by “nimiti“ today, we are making good progress in both squares at SAV1E. Interestingly, the ceramics from Square 2 in the South comprise already much 18th Dynasty material – 51 % of the total and this just 20 cm below the surface! As proposed already in our first week, this seems to be connected to the neighbourhood of Temple A.

Square 1 gets more and more interesting as well – at it’s eastern side there are mud bricks already in place and along a very promising North-South alignment. But before going deeper there, we have to work through material which covers the western half and is mostly a deposit of gravel and sand, as illustrated here. Finds were not numerous today and all of us are looking forward to the next step of work tomorrow!
