Balat XII

The Sheikh Muftah site at Balat North

The Sheikh Muftah site at Balat in the Dakhla Oasis in the Western Desert offers unique insights into the daily-life routine in a residential camp during the 3rd millennium BC. Its investigations revealed for the first time a well preserved stratigraphic sequence and dwelling features for the Sheikh Muftah group. These features together with the findings contribute to the discussion of subsistence and lifestyle of a non-sedentary group. Dating back to a period when the Egyptian Pharaonic was significantly increasing, the research also answers to some questions about transcultural contacts and changes in the oasis.
