During spring 2017 the team was aided by Ministry of Antiquities’ Inspectors in order to rescue unique finds dating from c. 100,000 BP to 4,000 BC during the Wadi el-Gamal Rescue Project, just before major construction works started on these ancient terraces of the Nile Delta. This project was enabled by financial support from both ARCE's Antiquities' Endowment Fund and the National Geographic Society (GEFNE 165-16).
