WINDING DOWN AND GOING HOME
Working in Egypt is always full of surprises. As is not uncommon, we came to do certain things and ended up accomplishing other things we didn't expect. For example, we originally hoped to investigate tombs KV 50, 51 and 52 but due to a couple of unanticipated situations, we instead concentrated our efforts on KV 48 and 60, two remarkable tombs very worthy of attention. We accomplished much but at some point, we needed to call a finish to this year's field season, close up operations, and head on home. The work doesn't end there, though, as there is data to analyze and prepare for publication.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this "BLOG." We'll probably be adding to it on occasion when we have additional items of interest regarding our work in the Valley of the Kings. And for those who would like further information, I recommend the following books:
(It's also been published in German.)
A great summary of the Valley and it's many tombs.
Tut and his many treasures.
Everything you need to know about mummies by two outstanding Egyptologists.
UNTIL NEXT TIME!
Enjoy a lovely Egyptian sunset!
