Lecturer: Pam J. Crabtree

Amheida (Roman Trimithis) is located in the Dakleh Oasis in the western Egyptian desert. Excavations carried out in the town have focused on a 3rd-century middle class household and a 4th-century villa. Additional excavations have been conducted at the 4th-5th-century church complex an Ain el-Gedida, also located in the oasis. This presentation will review the archaeology of these three sites and then show how archaeological data can be used to reveal differences in diet and social status between the three sites.
