Sheikh Zouéde mosaic

I’ve just uploaded no less than 48 of my photos of a late antique mosaic in the Ismailiya Museum (Egypt) to the public part of my Flickr site. It was found in Northern Sinai at a locality known as Sheikh Zouéde in the early 20th century. The excavators argued at the time that the mosaic came from a fortress, but it seems likely that the mosaic in fact comes from a villa. There’s also a couple of shots below the fold.

I would like you to publish your thesis verbatim online as an eBook. That is as long as you don’t change its title more than 10 more times. Ha
