Caption: Excavated clay artefacts. Oil lamps and clay cooking utensils discovered at an archaeological site at the Al-Fayoum oasis. This oasis, the biggest in Egypt, is about 150 kilometres from Cairo. It is the location of the Ancient Egyptian city of Tebtunis, which dates to around 1800 BC. During the Ptolemaic period (300-30 BC) and the later Roman period it was an important centre for commerce. Excavations led by Italian and French archaeologists, starting in 1988, have uncovered large areas of the old city, including numerous artifacts.
