Merimdabeni Salama

   Modern name of an archaeological site in the Delta northwest of Cairo where a prehistoric town settlement was located. The later phases include mudbrick houses apparently built in a town plan. The culture is contemporary with that of elBadari and Naqada I but exhibits differences that were originally thought to indicate separate cultural development for Lower Egypt. The site was excavated by a German expedition from 1928–1939 and 1977–1983. Recent discoveries at Minshat Abu Omar indicate that Naqada culture was also present in the north.
