Theban Tomb TT110 Field School for the Epigraphic, Photographic and Artifact Recording of the Tomb Project

Grantee: JJ Shirley: University of Pennsylvania

Category: Training of Egyptian Personnel

Objective: Over the past two years ARCE has conducted a large USAID funded project in the Luxor region. This project encompassed a number of objectives including several conservation, training and site improvement initiatives providing hundreds of jobs during a very difficult period. One of these projects has been the excavation and conservation of Theban Tomb 110, located on the West Bank of the Nile at Luxor. This AEF award will support a field school to train MoA inspectors in the methodology of epigraphic and photographic documentation of the tomb and the study and recording of the many artifacts that were brought to light during ARCE’s excavation field school.
