Thanks to ASOR and its generous Platt Fellowship, I was able to participate as a supervisor on the Tell Timai /University of Hawaii’s 2011 summer excavation season in Egypt’s Nile delta region, working under Professor Robert J Littman and Dr. Jay Silverstein. I was lucky to be part of a multinational team with diverse archaeological/methodological orientations: from Anthropology, Classics, Philology, Art History and Egyptology. Supervisors hailed from the US, UK, Mexico, Greece, Germany, Egypt and Australia. A very talented cohort of students came from the US, Italy, Australia, Nigeria, Egypt and Canada. Egyptian workmen, both local and from Kuft, rounded out a spectacularly talented team that I feel privileged to have been a part of.
