XV, 325 pp. softcover
The growing importance of the Nile Delta in present-day archaeological investigation is clearly demonstrated by the increasing number of long-term explorations executed by the Egyptian Antiquities Department itself and by a number of foreign missions.
For the first time a Seminar has been devoted to this field of studies. The spheres of interest ranged from the Archaic through the Coptic period. Topics covered recent findings on a number of sites and palaeobiological research as well as methods of field research typical for this area, such as surveying, geo-electric sounding, drilling.
