Since 2012 I have been involved with the Antinoupolis Project, an ongoing archaeological project diected by Jay Heidel from University of Chicago, and Chicago House in Luxor. The aim of the project is to map the assess the nature and extent of archaeological remains associated with the Roman city of Antinoupolis, and to assess the threat to the archaeology from modern development, hopefully providing data with which to protect remains for posterity, or record the archaeology prior to destruction.
