Season by season

We are presenting here PCMA UW research from the last decade or so in the form of lists of projects that took place each year. For several years since 2006, many of the fieldwork campaigns were described and illustrated in an on-line “PCMA Newsletter” providing fast information on the season’s results. In time, the Newsletters were replaced by abstracts from reports published in Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean. We have also taken the opportunity to present here scans of a hard-copy Newsletter published since 1996 till 2005 in the PCMA Research Centre in Cairo.
