Delta SurveyA British Academy Research Project Information on the archaeological sites of the Delta is presented here in the form web-pages containing an alphabetical listing of sites. Where a substantial amount of information is available, or photographs of the site exist, links are provided to supplementary pages. The site-names in most cases are those of the Survey of Egypt maps. The material is offered as a source of reference and a tool for the planning of new projects. The letters 'T' and 'K' in the lists stand for 'Tell' and 'Kom' respectively, Arabic words for 'mound', describing the usual appearance of archaeological sites in the region. We would recommend viewing this area of the website on a desktop computer.

Visited by Penny Wilson in 2005. The village of Kom el-Bus is situated upon the mound, with the cemetery in the centre on the highest part, up to 4m above the surrounding fields. There were a few pottery sherds embedded in the surface of the mound and part of the western side of the mound was cut away, showing some stratigraphy.
