Bubastis

http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/2005/738/he1.htm
A fascinating description (and moral tale) of the modern fate of the extremely important site of Bubastis in the Delta: "The ancient city of Bubastis provides an example of how an important ancient Egyptian Delta city was slowly and systematically destroyed in modern times until little remained amidst Zagazig's urban expansion apart from miscellaneous architectural elements, broken stelae and statues". Well worth reading.
