Dig Diary: Excavations at the Temple Precinct of the Goddess Mut

"Since 1976, the Brooklyn Museum has been carrying out archaeological work at the Temple Precinct of the Goddess Mut . . . at South Karnak . . . . The Museum’s team, which has shared the site with an expedition from Johns Hopkins University since 2001, continues to explore how the Mut Precinct grew and what its inscriptions reveal about ancient Egyptian religion and life. Both expeditions are also devoted to the conservation and restoration of the site’s monuments". This page has the 2005 Dig Diary of the excavations at the Temple of Mut (famous for its astonishing quantities of statues of Sakhmet), with some terrific photos.
