Amheida website updated

NYU Excavations at Amheida

Three reports from the 2010 season are new available at the above page (Field Report, Geophysical Survey and Palaeozoology).

Amheida is an important site in Dakhleh Oasis. Here's an exerpt from the website's introduction:

The excavations undertaken at the ancient city of Amheida (known as Trimithis in the Roman period) are a unique combination of archaeological fieldwork and educational program. Although primarily a modern, multidisciplinary excavation, the project also offers undergraduate students the opportunity for a study-abroad semester in Egypt that combines fieldwork with classroom study and visits to archaeological sites and museums. We make our ongoing work on site available internationally to both scholarly and public audiences via the web as well as through printed work.
