This area was visited by Penny Wilson in 2004, who reported a zone overbuilt by houses without any visible archaeological material. 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.
