Dr. Carol Redmount, University of California at Berkeley

El Hibeh was first investigated by scholars in the late 1890s, and occasionally thereafter. UC Berkeley began work at the site in 2001. Massive looting and destruction of the tell occurred during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and sporadically afterwards. This past summer, Redmount’s team was finally able to return to the site and assess the damage in detail; their work included photographic documentation, using robot prototypes to investigate limestone tunnels, survey and so forth. This talk will provide an overview of the site and its history and a review and an assessment of the looting and its aftermath.
