Ancient Egyptian quarries literature update

Archaeology and Conservation Services (Per Storemyr)

Thanks to Per Storemyr for letting me know that his list of literature about ancient Egyptian quarries has been updated. This is a great resource for anyone interested in the topic of stone quarrying in Egypt, with some of the articles listed available for download as PDFs. There is also a seriously useful map showing types of stone quarried and the geological periods to which the stone types belong.
