Since 2014 the Wadi el-Hudi Expedition has been surveying and excavating archaeological sites of the Middle Kingdom (c. 2000-1700 BCE), Greco-Roman (c. 1st century BCE-4th century CE), and Arab Period (6th century – 19th century) consisting of amethyst mines and their associated settlements. Wadi el-Hudi’s unique archaeology and inscriptions offer insights into mining technology and the social and economic organization of how ancient Egyptians obtained precious stones to make jewelry and other luxury items for members of the royal family and other elite.
