Memphis was Egypt’s longest inhabited capital and was the administrative seat of the Pharaoh’s throughout the Dynastic Period. Following Petrie’s investigations of the extensive ruin fields, the EES undertook a survey of the area in 1982 under the direction of UCL’s Dr David Jeffreys. This year, the EES in embarking on a project to digitise some of the images taken during this survey and Manon will guide us through the archives and the discoveries made by the Survey of Memphis.
