Abstract

The Aswan-Kom Ombo Archeological Project (AKAP) is a joint venture between the University of Yale and the University of Bologna, working in the region of Aswan and Kom Ombo since 2005. With the aid of different methodologies (satellite images, survey, drillings, rescue excavations, documentation of rock art) and thanks to updated technologies (SRTM, photogrammetry, laser scanner), many sites have been documented so far spanning from the Paleolithic period to Roman times. This brief paper aims at giving a comprehensive overview of the last four years’ achievements and activities. We report on the discovery of Neolithic tumuli in the Wadi el-Lawi, in the desert east of Kom Ombo; of a series of Pan-Grave sites and Paleolithic locales, both on the West Bank Aswan and in the Wadi Kubbaniya; the excavation of predynastic storing features and a Late Paleolithic campsite, again in the area of Kubbaniya; the documentation of rock art and its surrounding landscape using digital methodologies and the discovery of human remains from the predynastic village of Nag el-Qarmila pertaining of a child with scurvy disease.
