This preliminary report covers the results of four brief seasons of survey and limited excavation undertaken by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, partly as a followup to the Hearst Expedition excavations originally conducted at the site by George Reisner in 1900-1901. Lacovara and his co-writers clarify the unpublished records of the Hearst Expedition, showing that the site was far larger than the records indicated and that a number of important areas were not excavated, including a chapel near the workers' village.

Illustrated with figures, 17 plates and 4 plans.
