This is the first volume in an important new series that will cover the historical sites of all 27 governorates of Egypt. It presents a comprehensive study of 126 archaeological sites located within the geographic boundaries of Sharqiya Governorate in Egypts Nile Delta. The work is based upon and retrieved from the Geographic Information System (GIS) and the database that were created through the Egyptian Antiquities Information System (EAIS) project in the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA). The objective of the project is to develop a comprehensive official documentation of historical sites in all the governorates of Egypt, and consequently to provide realistic and coherent site information that will be indispensable not only to archaeologists and researchers but also to governmental agencies, which can use the information in protecting and managing the sites. The first part of the volume, in paper book format, contains introductory manuals, attribute tables of all sites, satellite images, topographical maps, and keys of cadastral maps covering the whole governorate. The second part, in digital format on CD-ROM, contains an individual description of each site, sorted by markaz, and includes detailed maps and information about the history, archaeological contents, legal status, state of preservation, and bibliography of each site
