The site was identified for surface exploration from the compilation of Delta sites in Google EarthTM and was investigated by Dr Jeffrey Spencer and Dr Patricia Spencer from 2012-15. During this time a substantial casemate foundation-platform was uncovered and a Ramesside temple. Directorship of the Delta Survey passed to Penny Wilson in 2016 and further investigation of the site is expected to continue.
