Une première campagne de prospection à Médamou : Méthodologie et résultats préliminaires (Mission Ifao/Paris-Sorbonne/Labex Resmed de Médamoud)

Abstract : Between 1925 and 1940, an IFAO/Louvre mission has excavated Medamud. A new project has reopened the study on site since 2011 and in 2015 has performed a ceramic and geophysical survey in order to increase our knowledge of the kom. The numerous firing wastes prove that Medamud was one of the biggest production centers in Upper Egypt. The geophysical survey has highlighted the principal remains discovered by Bisson de la Roque around the temple. Our study has been largely focused on the areas never excavated, and has proved the existence of a new artisanal district specialised on the ceramic production, a new surrounding wall and a canal/channel linking Medamud with the Nile.
