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.

Some pottery was collected. The highest point of the village is 6-7m above the level of the fields and represents the side of the original mound which was cut off and truncated by the fields on the north-western side. According to the SoE 1:50,000 map the Ezbet Sharif is in this location, but to the north there is a series of ridges. They don’t seem to be visible now, but it may be that we didn’t go far enough across the road to check. Satellite imagery of 2006 shows the village just to the west of Kom el-Giza, from which it is separated by a canal. The imprint of a large long and narrow mound can bee seen in the fields to the NW of the village, at 31 08 34N 30 10 36E. Part of this mound has been dug out to leave a water-filled depression. There is an isolated mound remnant in the fields about 100m south of the main area of the site.
