Amheida is a major urban site in the Dakhla Oasis with occupation through to the Late Roman Period. This talk will describe the conservation and site development work there, under the auspices of New York University, over the last five years. A major component of this was the construction of a replica of a Roman house to serve as a visitors centre.

Since 1993 he has been based in Egypt, where he has participated in or directed a number of projects related to the documentation, preservation, and presentation of historic structures and archaeological material.
