The International Wadi Farasa Project

Preliminary Report on the 2006 Season

by Stephan G. Schmid


Despite the relatively short duration of the 2006 campaign, quite some progresses as for the understanding of the Soldier’s Tomb complex and of the so-called Renaissance Tomb were obtained.

In 2007 we plan, within others, to complete the anthropological study of the human remains discovered in 2005 and the redaction of a monographic study devoted to the burials excavated in the Wadi Farasa East so far. Further, a more substantial cleaning of the complex is planned.
