Report on the third field season of the joint research project "Sodmein Cave" (Eastern Desert, Egypt) in spring 2012

Abstract

The third field season of the joint research project “Sodmein Cave”, conducted by the German University of Cologne and the Belgian University of Leuven, took place in spring 2012 between the 10th of March and the 15th of April. The field work was carried out under the aegis of the Collaborative Research Centre 806, which was established in 2009 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Research Funding Organisation).
During the first field campaign in 2010 the archaeological excavations in Sodmein Cave could be resumed as a kind of continuation of the 1990’s activities of the Belgian Middle Egypt Prehistoric Project (BMEPP). On the contrary, the focus during the second season was on the analysis of the archaeological material from the former Belgian excavations in the magazine of Quft. The aim of this 2012 spring campaign concentrated anew on the archaeological excavations in the cave. The main objectives of this last research season have been to
- continue the archaeological excavation in the cave
- document the trenches and the cave with a 3D laser scan and,
- survey the terraces in the hearer surrounding of Sodmein Cave.
