This April the Sixth Delta Survey Workshop will be held in Mansoura. The DSW began as part of the Delta Survey Project of the Egypt Exploration Society funded by the British Academy and organised by Dr Jeffery Spencer and Dr Patricia Spencer. Each workshop has benefitted from the exchange of archaeological information between colleagues working all over the Nile Delta, from the chance to meet old and new friends and to support each other in our endeavours to record, research and disseminate our archaeological and historical work in the northern provinces of Egypt.

Throughout the existence of the Delta Survey Project we respect and acknowledge the partnership, advice and support of the Ministry of Antiquities, the Minister Dr Khaled el-Enany the Secretary of the Permanent Committee Dr Mostafa el Waziri and those who directly operate the Foreign Missions Department, currently under the auspices of Dr Nashwa Gabr. In addition Dr Hisham el Leithy and Dr Aiman Ashmawy have been continuous supporters of the Delta Survey.

This year we are pleased and honoured to have the support of Mansoura University to host the workshop, through Professor Dr Ashraf Abdel Baset the President of Mansoura University, Professor Ashraf Suweilman the Vice-president of Postgraduate Studies and Foreign Affairs, Professor Reda Sayed Ahmed, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Professor Maha el Seguini and Professor Mohamed el Kenawy, the former President of the University.

The organising committee for the Workshop comprises: Dr C├ędric Gobeil and Essam Nagy at the EES, Dr Ayman Wahby, Professor Randa Baligh and Dr Nehad Kamel el Din in the Mansoura University, Dr Joanne Rowland and Dr Penelope Wilson.
