The worked wood study and registered object collection, as well as current finds of worked wood objects from the season (2008) were examined from the perspective of wood species identification. A total of 568 objects was studied and 85% of the assemblage was identified to species. 438 pieces (some 77%) proved to be of local Egyptian wood, mainly tamarisk and sycamore. Other native species of wood were represented sporadically. Non native species represented in the assemblage included Cedrus atlantica ssp. libani (37 items), ebony Diospyros lotus (7 items) and beech Fagus orientalis (1 item).
