Not just an Aftermath – Tell el-Dab’a After the New Kingdom
Tell el-Dab'a is a settlement that is well known for its Second Intermediate Period and New Kingdom houses, temples and palaces. Less well known is that this site was settled extensively in the Late and Ptolemaic Periods as well. Changes in the traditional Egyptian architecture evolve into a quite different settlement layout. New research is giving insights into a typical Egyptian settlement in the time after the New Kingdom in the Delta.
