DPhil Egyptology student fieldwork in Egypt

St Benet's DPhil Egyptology student, Thais Rocha da Silva, spent the fieldwork season, studing the domestic building MC50 14-16 in Main City South at Tell el-Amarna.  Tell el-Amarna is an extensive Egyptian archaeological site at the location of the capital city of the Pharaoh Akhenaten of the late Eighteenth Dynasty.  It is located on the east back of the river Nile about 310 km south of Cairo.  Thais processed the faience objects and started the analysis of the domestic space using a Geographical Information System (GIS). The building also worked as a workshop for faience and glass production.
