Digital Documentation of a Provincial Town in Ancient Egypt

The development of new digital image capturing techniques enabling researchers to process data from archaeological excavations more accurately and efficiently at the site of Tell Edfu, one of the last well-preserved ancient cities in Egypt.

This project will develop new digital image capturing techniques that enable researchers to process data from archaeological excavations more accurately and efficiently than ever before. The site of Tell Edfu, which is the focus of this project, is one of the last well-preserved ancient cities in Egypt. The incredibly rich and complex stratigraphic record with its numerous well-preserved building levels at Tell Edfu are ideally suited for the development of new technical methods for the recording and analysis of archaeological data.
