Abstract

A joint Italian-Egyptian mission called EIMAWA (Egyptian-Italian Mission at West Aswan) was created in 2017. Relying on the support of the University of Milan and that of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, it has mapped, geolocated and numbered almost 300 tombs, excavating one in a systematic way. The investigation revealed significant typological differences in the structure of the tombs which testify to a millenary use of the necropolis, between the seventh century BC and the third century AD. The excavation, study and enhancement of the entire area are still ongoing.
