Abstract

This report details the activities of the first field season of the Shalfak Archaeological Mission in April 2017. It presents the framework of the project, the results of the mapping survey, the discoveries in three excavations areas – including a hitherto unidentified Middle Kingdom extra muros storage and/or workshop complex – as well as a reconnaissance of the fortress’s surroundings. The article also includes a short discussion of the find material recovered in this season.
