1911-12 Qamadir

Type of fieldwork: 
Excavation
Season summary: 

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

Excavations were started on February 19 and ended on the 26th.

Over a 100 graves were excavated in the Roman cemetery. The excavator notes a lead tablet with a Greek inscription.
