Maadi

   Modern name for a suburb south of Cairo where excavations by Cairo University from 1930–1953 uncovered a settlement and cemeteries dating to the late Predynastic Period. The remains included huts and storage pits for grain and pottery, both local and imported, from Palestine. The local culture is different from that of Upper Egypt of the Naqada Period, which is believed to be in part contemporary and was thought to represent a separate culture of Lower Egypt, although excavations at Minshat Abu Omar and elsewhere in the Delta reveal Naqada culture there. AGerman expedition investigated the site from 1999–2002.
