Grantee: David Jeffreys: Egypt Exploration Society
Category: Conservation, Preservation & Presentation
Objective: The AEF Committee was pleased to be able to financially support this project, which will ultimately see the publication of the material excavated by the Mit Rahina Field School in 2011at Kom el-Fakhry, a stratified settlement site ranging from early 12th to late 13th Dynasties comprising ceramics, objects, fauna and mud sealing impressions. This project epitomizes the long running partnerships between ARCE, AERA and the Egypt Exploration Society (EES) spanning a 30 year commitment by the EES to the Memphite region, matched with the successful AERA training programs. The publication of this material is the final and essential step in the conservation through analysis, documentation process and will help preserve through documentation an important and disappearing record in the history of this important regional center.
