As reported on Dec. 26, 2018 on the Tell Edfu Project Website (Oriental Institute, University of Chicago) in November this year, the team under the direction of Prof. Nadine Möller and Dr. Gregory Marouard, has found the remains of a settlement from the 18th Dynasty.

The excavations initially concentrated on a 400 m² city villa, which dates to the early Thutmoside period (about 1500 - 1450 BC). Several rooms of the building were equipped with columns. In the main room - a 6-pillared hall with about 80 square meters floor space - the team discovered remainders of a well preserved shrine, which was dedicated to the cult of the ancestors of the family of the house owner:

" New Discoveries of a Domestic Shrine for Ancestor Worship of the Early New Kingdom (ca. 1500 BCE) at Tell Edfu " (Tell Edfu Project - Press Release, 25.12.2018).

Greetings, Lutz.
