Penny Wilson read out Irene Forstner-Müller's paper on the fluvial landscapes of Avaris based on the analysis of geological and geophysical surveys, excavation and objects. The work is refining the precise plan of the city and the extent of the harbour in the 13th Dynasty when it seems to have been very active, into the 15th Dynasty. Then it was abandoned, filled in by sediments and rubbish and the area was reoccupied in the Ramesside period as part of the city of Pi-Ramesses.
In the last 5 workshops, Irene has shown us the developing study of the site as more detail emerges of its different areas over time.
