Record type: Article


Two seasons of geoarchaeological and geophysical fieldwork (2008, 2009) were conducted at a small mound, known locally as Kom el-Farahy, some 800m to the south-east of the necropolis of Hagr Edfu. The work shows that the site formed as an island in the Nile, suggesting that the river lay 3km to the west of Edfu town and temple during the New Kingdom. Geophysical fieldwork on the west side of the Edfu mound has clearly revealed the profile of the sandstone outcrop upon which the temple stands.
