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.

Found during demolition: leg and crown of grey granite colossus of Rameses II; inscribed granite and limestone blocks of Rameses II; Graeco-Roman bronze folding stand. All probably taken from Tell el Moqdam, present location unknown. The site is now reduced to a small mound topped by Sheikh's tomb. Red granite sarcophagus (still on site). The red granite sarcophagus, located on the northwest side of the mound, still partially buried, is oval in shape and uninscribed. This site may be equivalent to Kom Mit Nagi on the Description map.
