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.

Additional information and photographs from the survey of July 2005, led by J. Rowland: Tell Umm Harb is the name for the most raised area of Tell Mostai and is situated on its western edge. It is reached by driving away from the canal and through the streets of the village. On the way to the area of the old tombs a number of ceramic sherds were found and a large pink granite block (2 x 1.5m) which may have been used in antiquity was seen. A number of sherds were in the channels at the edge of a cultivated maize field, including a number of red pottery sherds. At the top of the tell are four tombs which are hidden under ground and have yet to be archaeologically investigated. These are said by our inspector to be Jewish tombs. This grassy sandy mound rises some 2m higher than the surrounding fields. It is 10 x 20m in size and some 50m to the west of Sheikha Umm Harb’s tomb, which is in the east. There were many large sherds on this mound, including the base of an amphora amongst other sherds including handles; some sherds were very thick and poorly burned. There were some stone blocks (unworked) of around 10cm in length (rectangular shape) on the mound. Limestone blocks, probably from here, were noted in the cemetery of the adjacent village of El-Rimali.
