Who was who in Elephantine of the third millennium BC?
The general outline of the history and development of human occupation of Elephantine Island has been established over the past decades. The German-Swiss mission now aims to achieve a better understanding of the social and economic processes during particular periods. By resuming investigations, for example, in the Old Kingdom strata, the effect of external interferences and regional distribution patterns can be ascertained at the First Cataract, a key zone of interface between Egypt and its neighbours.
