Third season of excavation
The discovery of a new temple tomb
On October 1st, 2019, we started our third season of excavation at Tuna el-Gebel. Cleaning the western area of GB 72, a large building of adobe bricks, we discovered not only a stone building, but also a so far untouched room! Inside the stone tomb we found a large quantity of pottery, like amphorae, cooking pots, flasks, oil lamps... According to our ceramologist Clementina Caputo they all belong to the Late Antiquity and formed a storage for a community.
