This preliminary report provides a general account of the fieldwork of the New York University-ISAW during the two seasons 2019 and 2020 at the temple of Ramesses II in Abydos. The results include the discovery of a temple palace, ten mud-brick magazines, and foundation deposits, as well as a pair of cartouches of Ramesses II carved on the sub-foundation on each side of the four corners of temple, the unusual burial of a bovine skeleton under the floor of the temple palace, and animal skulls and bones packed inside niches cut in some of the magazines’ walls.
