Very exciting to hear from Mariusz Jucha about research at Tell el-Murra  Incredible material that is really bringing a lot of new data to the question of the transition through the Predynastic and into the Early Dynastic - particularly the difference that can be observed between sites within close proximity. Mariusz shared with us the result from different areas of excavation and discussed the important element of missing time phases at the site - but also the importance of realising that sites shift over time, possibly due to climatic elements. This talk also showed how important survey work has been conducted in the area which is also bringing many new sites into our knowledge, not only for the Old Kingdom surface finds, but also starting to reveal earlier periods.  Definitely watch this space!
