mapping a hypothetical series of relict channels west of the Canopic branch
through iterative visual examinations of the SEGY maps and Corona satellite
images,23 especially in those spots where the SRTM showed visible curvilinear
mounding indicative of a former waterway.

23 Corona satellite imagery have proven their worth many times over in archaeology
because their temporal coverage in the 1960s and 70s predates changes that have
fragmented the historical landscape (galiatsatos, 2004). In our work they provid
between eighteenth-century thinkers across the Atlantic world.16 Taking advantage
of current technology, scholars now agree that such networks as those conveyed by
the eighteenth-century “Republic of Letters” are essential to understanding how
ideas migrate through space and time.17 Now a legitimate interpretative “turn” in
itself that joins the ranks among the previous iterations in the “cultural” and “lin-
guistic” realms, the spatial moment continues to encourage new lines of interpreta-
tion in a variety of subfields from cultural history to Jewish
/aroura, probably the
highest ever attested in pharaonic Egypt. This perfectly corroborates the model
which predicts that the land in this part of the floodplain provides the best yield.
One characteristic of the fiscal organisation of fields in P. Reinhardt is that the
plot surface is regularly reduced by iterative subtractions of an untaxed area.46
The subtracted parts are tiny, with a median value of 0.63 arouras, which is very
reminiscent of the surface of plots measured in land-cubits in P. Wilbour.47 A
very interesting feature for our purpose is that P. Reinhardt
