Located at the juncture of Upper and Lower Egypt, the site of el-Hibeh was the repeated meeting point of political unity and fragmentation from the Third Intermediate Period through the reshaping of Egypt under the Ptolemies. The site was at various times a large town, a fort, a temple-town, and the home of a community of priests. This preliminary report on one season of excavation at el-Hibeh surveys remains from stratified deposits in two areas of first millennium BC occupation.
