I solved the challenge posited by Chris in When-onGE 123, it was a quarry in eastern Egypt, so I have to host the game for the fourth time. Find the location of the picture on Google Earth and identify the site and the main period of occupation (write your answer in the comments). The first one to get it correct gets to host the next challenge.
Update: 2011-03-10. Here is a more detailed view of the structure (or what's left of it) in question.
Update: 2011-03-14. The name of the location of this site seems to mean beauty or goodness.
Update: 2011-03-16. A wider view of the sector...
