1902-03 Gebel Shekh Umbarak (Faiyum)

Type of fieldwork: 
Excavation
Season summary: 

The excavations were sponsored by the Graeco-Roman branch and thus were concerned with recovering papyri from the Graeco-Roman period rather than objects or material from different time periods.

A few pieces of 6th century papyri were recovered from the village. The excavators not the remains are shallow.
