Survey: Archaeometrical Methods in Egyptian Archaeology Dear colleagues,

In course of our work in the archaeology of Egypt, archaeometrical methods are gaining more and more importance. However, the current state of archaeometry in Egypt is unknown.

To gain a better overview over the situation of archaeometrical analyses in Egypt we assembled a questionaire, which is available through the following link:

We would ask
- directors of archaeological projects,
- archaeologists working with archaeometrical methods as well as
- archaeometrists working in projects in Egypt
to answer this questionaire until *October 31st, 2015*.

The results from this survey should provide an overview on how archaeometry is implemented and understood by researchers from all scientific fields currently working in the archaeology of
Egypt. They shall be presented during the next International Symposium for Archaeometry in May 2016 in Kalamata, Greece. Through this we hope to take the first step in a closer communication and cooperation of archaeological projects and institutions in Egypt, and to support the advance of Egypt as an internationally recognised location for archaeometrical sciences.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and anonymous and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate.

Thank you very much for your time and support.

Best wishes,

Anita Quiles (Institut français d'archéologie orientale Le
Caire) and
Johanna Sigl (German Archaeological Institute Cairo)
