Two seasons at Zawyet Sultan (Middle Egypt)

Prof Richard Bussmann, University of Cologne

The archaeological remains of Zawyet Sultan shed light on local life in a provincial capital from late prehistory to the early Islamic period. They include a small pyramid, various cemeteries, settlement remains and a large quarry landscape. During two survey seasons in 2015 and 2017, the site has been surveyed to set the published reports of previous missions to the site in their archaeological context. The lecture summarises the results of the seasons which were made possible with kind support of the Egypt Exploration Society.

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
