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.

The mound was partly occupied by a village and modern cemetery, but accessible areas of the surface contained Coptic material. Satellite imagery of 2005 shows a mound of 160 x 80m covered by modern tombs. Information collected by Joanne Rowland, 2006: A local farmer informed us that to the west of this site, at San Saft, the fields are full of pottery. This site was found during a search for a Kom Shuhada, visited in 1912 by Georges Daressy. It is about 4km north of Zawiyet Rosein (see Delta Survey no. 43 Kom Manous). We found a large number of sherds in the fields around the cemetery including a number of diagnostics. The pottery would appear to be Roman in date and there is a wide range of different handles, bases and rims. Walls were said to be under the fields, perhaps these are the underground channels of red brick referred to at other sites.
