Dig Diary, February 12, 2018:

We finished the new retaining walls and stairway down to the Thutmoside gate on February 6. We installed a post and rope barrier around the area for the safety of visitors as the excavation is quite deep. At last people will be able to get a close look at this important monument, one of the earliest standing structures in the Mut Precinct.

We were very lucky that Julia Harvey was willing to come again this year even though there is no pottery for her to sort. She arrived on site on February 3 and was an immense help with the final documentation and photography of the site’s Sekhmet statues. Here she is dusting off the lap of the large and famous statue in the Mut Temple’s 2nd Court so I can photograph it.

Just the first entries to get you started. The rest here with lots of great photos: ... ed-the-new

Carpe diem! :le:
