Amheida 2005 Excavation Report Online
This is a lovely and highly informative page with plans, photographs and detailed descriptions: “During the 2005 season, a much enlarged team continued conservation and excavation work on the late Roman house (Area 2.1), began the excavation of the site of the Temple of Thoth (Area 4.1), and excavated part of a less wealthy house in Area 1.3. In addition, several types of survey were carried out for future planning and for a more complete view of the ancient city”. See the above page for much more information, and to get a real feel for the excavations being carried out at Amheida by Columbia University since 2004, following field surveys carried out in 2001 and 2002. You can download the page as a PDF as well.

Thank you Andie. I found the report very informative. I'm not an archaeologist however I am intrigued by the work you folks do.
