Archaeological dig-houses of Egypt

Post by Kevininabydos »

The owner of this site is a friend of a friend of mine and came to stay with me with his wife whilst researching the Abydos dig-houses a couple of years ago. He usually comes to Egypt 2 or 3 times a year and travels all over Egypt in his search for dig-houses, though this year he decided to wait out the situation here. The research is thorough and well informed and there are a lot of good photographs. There is information on 5 dig-houses in Luxor, including Davis, Carter, De Garis, also houses at other important archaeological sites. A fun read and good resource that will be updated as and when...

I have been in email contact with Marcel over the last month or so and we are arranging for him to give a lecture on the dig houses when he next visits in March or early April next year.
I will give more info on when and where nearer the time :)
