Detailed Project Description

General Information

ID (CGMA ID):
EG246
Project Name:
Tell Tinnis Archaeological Project
Project Description:
"The aim of the work has been to record as efficiently as possible the largely - featureless mounds of rubble that characterise the site, and to extract the maximum amount of information from what remains without undertaking the sort of large scale excavations necessary to uncover a ground plan of the town. The survey results will allow the formulation of an informed site management strategy for future investigavtion." Project Website
