Wadi Araba

Yann Tristant

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Wadi Araba is an arid valley which extends nearly 160 km from Zafrana on the Red Sea coast to the north of Beni Suef in the Nile Valley. The survey project aims to explore Wadi Araba in a systematic manner, following the foothills of the main axis and the secondary wadis which cut transverse routes and allow travel across the Galala massif. It involves making an inventory of water sources, occupational sites (campsites, settlements, cemeteries, mining locations), rock inscriptions and all archaeological, historic and geographic documentation which relates to this communication route. The main interest of the project lies within its diachronic perspective, spanning from Prehistory until the modern era.
