acdh:hasDescription
The excavations of Tell el-Daba started in 1966 under the direction of Manfred Bietak. In the years 1966-1969, 1975-1985 and again in 1997, 2009 and 2011 excavations were carried out at the actual Tell in the areas A/I, A/II and A/N. Further excavations followed in areas A/III (1967, 1987, 1988), F/I (1979-1989), E/I (1979), A/V (1987-1988), H/I-VI (1989-2007), A/IV (1990-1991, 2000), R/I (1996), F/II (2006-2011) and R/II (2008-2009). Due to the Arab-Israeli war, the excavations at Tell el-Daba were interrupted from 1969 to 1975. During this period work was carried out in Assasif, Thebes West.
Manfred Bietak lead the excavations from 1966 to 2009 as excavation director, and worked as the director of the branch office of the ÖAI Cairo from 1973-2009. His representatives on site were Josef Dorner from 1981-2003 and Irene Forstner-Müller from 2003-2009, who took over the management of the excavation and the Cairo branch in 2009. From 1989-2001 Peter Janosi was employed as excavation assistant for Tell el-Daba at the University of Vienna.
The excavations were carried out by the University of Vienna from 1966-1973. In 1973 the ÖAI took over the excavations in Tell el-Daba. With a few exceptions, work at Tell el-Daba was carried out twice a year, with most excavations taking place in spring (2-3 months), while in autumn (2-3 months) the material was processed.

info The Tell el-Daba Documentation Archive is a digital archive for resources from the Austrian long-term fieldwork project in Tell el-Daba, Egypt. The archive was created within the framework of the project `A Puzzle in 4D´ (Austrian Fund for Research, Technology & Development (DH 2014/12)), in which the documentation materials available at the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) at the Austrian Academy of Sceinces (ÖAW) were prepared for digital archiving. Further documentation is available at the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) in Cairo and at the ÖAI in Vienna. The archive forms the basis for the archiving of further documents, which will result from future projects.
The excavations in Tell el-Daba, Egypt, from 1966 to today (with a brief break due to the Arab-Israeli war of 1970-1975) were carried out by the ÖAI under the direction of Manfred Bietak and his successor Irene Forstner-Müller. Field investigations took place in nine different areas, which revealed a continuous stratigraphy from the early Middle Kingdom to the New Kingdom (around 1980/70 - 1410 BC).

The Tell el-Daba archive consists of four parts:
• AboutThisArchive_Archivinformation_E73
