Connected to the 2005 survey in the Aswan area, a one-week field school was arranged. Twelve participants from the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), the Egypt Antiquities Information System (EAIS) and the North South Consultant Exchange (NSCE) participated in a training programme which included recognition and documentation of archaeological features in ancient quarry landscapes and GPS aided surveying.
