1900-01 Karanis (Faiyum)
Type of fieldwork:
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.
The Ptolemaic cemetery was excavated but the papyri recovered was degraded and many of the tombs had been plundered in antiquity.
