Gurob


Gurob
   Modern name for a site in the Fayum west of the Nile. Ancient Egyptian Merwer. A palace complex and associated town and cemetery were located here during Dynasty 18, Dynasty 19, andDynasty 20. The finds included imported Mycenaean pottery. It is believed that the famous sycamore head of Queen Tiy, now in the Berlin Egyptian Museum, came from this vicinity. Other cemeteries date from the late Predynastic Period to the First Intermediate Period and the Ptolemaic Period. The area was excavated by Flinders Petrie from 1888–1890 and again by his team from 1903–1904 and in 1920. It was briefly surveyed in 1978 and 1983 and since 2005 has been investigated by a team from the University of Liverpool.
