More re rescue archaeology at Merowe Dam

More of much the same as earlier posts at:
"The Merowe dam is a controversial hydroelectric project one of the largest in Africa being erected on the Nile's fourth cataract and due to start flooding the valley over more than 100 miles within months. Archaeologists admit that an incalculable amount of information will be forever lost. But the largest archaeological rescue project since the Nubian campaign began in the 1960s (during the construction of the Aswan dam in southern Egypt) has unearthed a heritage that would likely have remained untapped."
See the above for the full story.
