The EES Delta Surveys

EES Delta Survey  

The aim of the EES Delta Survey is to investigate those tells in the Delta about which little is known - to record surface features, get an idea of the dating of any material and the site in general and carry out surveys. If a site has any significant features, these can then be investigated in more detail. All the information gathered is fed back into the on-line data held on the Society’s website: to inform colleagues and record the current state of sites, many of which are under threat from urban or agricultural expansion. The work that Penny Wilson and her team are currently doing around Lake Burullos is the first stage in this process (gathering information), and the survey which they will start next week at Tell Mutubis is the follow-up stage of more detailed study.
