'Faiyum is a city in Middle Egypt. Located 100 kilometres southwest of Cairo, in the Faiyum Oasis. Originally called Shedet in Egyptian, the Greeks called it Koinē Greek: Κροκοδειλόπολις Krokodilópolis, and later Arsinoë. It is one of Egypt's oldest cities due to its strategic location. In ancient Egypt, the city was called Shedet. It was the most significant centre of the cult of the crocodile god Sobek. Faiyum is the source of some famous death masks or mummy portraits painted during the Roman occupation of the area.'

'The Egypt Exploration Society was founded in 1882 in order to examine and excavate in the areas of Egypt and Sudan. The intent was to study and analyse the results of the excavations and publish the information for the scholarly world. The Egypt Exploration Fund was founded as a way to raise funds for more excavations in the Delta, which had been noted as being rarely visited.'
