Anna Longa-Prager (1977–2021)

We were saddened to learn of the death of Dr Anna Longa-Prager. As an archaeologist, she both excavated in Poland and cooperated with PCMA UW taking part in numerous seasons of fieldwork in Egypt and Sudan.

She participated in excavations at Tell el-Farha, and in the works at the Temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari, and at the Dakhla oasis. She has also worked in Sudan, in the area of the Fourth Nile Cataract, including the sites of El-Ar and Hagar el-Beida. She was the recipient of several PCMA scholarships, under which she researched the cultures of prehistoric Nubia in the 4th and 3rd millennia BC.

We extend our deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
