(Joint description of season 2012 and 2013)

Excavations of the site of Tell el-Murra in the northeastern part of the Nile Delta in 2012 and 2013, following up on surveys in 2008 and in 2010–2011, uncovered settlement structures from the Old Kingdom in the northeastern part of the site (trench T5). Excavations in the adjacent cemetery (trench S3) cleared more graves, which were dated to the Early Dynastic period based on pottery and stone vessel evidence.

The research was funded from a grant of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the National Science Centre, Poland (No. 2195/B/H03/2009/36).
