Reports

The permission to undertake archaeological fieldwork in Egypt is granted by the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt. It is stipulated that missions submit a report on each season of work. The reports produced for the Kom Firin project are made available here.

Please note that these reports are preliminary in nature, and have not been modified from their original form. Therefore, conclusions and interpretations in earlier reports may have been revised. However, making the reports available online allows scholars and other interested persons to see the latest results of excavations, as final publication can take many years.
