Abstract:The survey area extends from just west of Sabha to Dair al-Qinn in the east; and from the Syrian frontier south to the Baghdad Highway. Following a preliminary season in 1985, a season of fieldwork in 1992 extended the field survey over a wider area around the expedition base in Umm al-Quttain, experimented with the use of air photos of the region, and undertook a small scale excavation in Quttain on a circuit wall believed to be that of a Roman fort and from which it was hoped to obtain stratified pottery for application to the survey. The latter involved the recording of a number of important new sites and the air photos proved a valuable tool for prospection and interpretation.
