Dear Chapters,

You have probably seen the excitement over the recent discoveries of large statues in Heliopolis. Here is the NPR story - 
Archaeologists suspect that the damaged statue, more than 25 feet tall, depicts Ramses II — aka Ozymandias. One of English literature's most famous poems describes a broken, forgotten statue of him.


ARCE has had a part in this since it was an emergency AEF grant given in 2015 that initially enabled the team to continue working. See the story from 2015.  http://www.arce.org/news/u166

Best wishes,
Kathleen
