The Memorial Temple of Tausert lies between the Ramesseum and the Temple of Merenptah on Luxor's west bank. Tausert, a woman, was the last ruler of the 19th dynasty and a figure of particular historical interest. The site was briefly examined by William Flinders Petrie in 1896, but after preliminary study, the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition decided that it would be worthwhile to fully clear, record, plan, conserve and publish the remains of this temple. The expedition began in 2004, and five subsequent field session have been completed, producing important results.
