GOP 1: Preliminary report for the 2004 field season. From the introduction:
"Our 2004 field season began on January 8, 2004, and drew to a close on May 31, 2004. It was AERA's first major season of the GPMP after our 2003 "study season," which was a break after our Millennium Projectthree years (19992002) of intensive clearing, mapping, and excavation of the ruins of the site called Heit el-Ghurob (HeG), Arabic for "Wall of the Crow," a local name for this tract of ground after its most defining feature, the 200-m-long stone wall on the northwest of the site (fig. 1). The 2004 season was in a sense the final push of our Millennium Project, because we added to the map of the "Lost City of the Pyramids" site the Western Town, a major component of the overall settlement consisting of a series of large house-like structures."
