Excavations at Sedeinga. A new Start


The Sedeinga Archaeological Unit (SEDAU ), a French mission funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the University of Paris-Sorbonne, undertook a new archaeological fieldwork campaign, from November 22nd until December 20th 2009 with a new director. This marked a new beginning with a team comprised as it was of several young specialists in Meroitic studies, either having recently passed their PhDs or currently completing them. It also marked the resumption of fieldwork in the Meroitic necropolis, after a hiatus of seven years. The team directed by Mrs Berger-el Naggar was engaged in several surveys around the Temple of Queen Tiyi during the final few seasons. The last large-scale archaeological fieldwork in the cemetery was conducted by the previous team in 2002 and focused on a group of Meroitic tombs with pyramidal superstructures in the part of Sector II extending eastward from the fringe of the camel track.
