We are excited to be back in the field and resuming our excavations at the Lost City of the Pyramids (Heit el-Ghurab).
On site we picked up where we left off last year, continuing excavations in an area that was previously hidden beneath a soccer field. We believe this area was once the site of a Nile port used to transport goods to the pyramid workers, and our work here is proving crucial to our understanding of how the site functioned.
In the lab our specialists are studying the finds from our excavations. This year we have a team intensively focused on the study of sealings, the bits of clay which were used by officials to secure the contents of anything from small vessels to entire storerooms. The text written on sealings is an important clue for dating and understanding the site's activities. We've already made some exciting new discoveries and we look forward to sharing them with you at the end of the season!
