The authors and contributors: Ablamowicz R., Debowska J., Jucha M., Kirkowski R., and Maczynska A. report on the 2002 and 2003, fieldworks carried out at Tell el-Farkha for two months each season. The main goal was to reach earlier layers at the Western and Central Koms as well as continue examination of graves from the cemetery previously discovered at the Eastern Kom. During these campaigns western parts of monumental Naqadian complex and Lower Egyptian buildings as well as a brewery from transitional layers were discovered. All of these were located at the Western Kom. Main discoveries at the Central Kom were buildings connected with the Naqada III period. Excavations at the Eastern Kom yielded remains of a circular building (8 m in diameter) and six new graves, including two two-chamber tombs, two one-chamber and two pit graves without offerings.
