Uncovering the history of dighouses

Uncovering the history of dighouses

With photos.

All over Egypt, you can find these “homes away from home”. The places, where all those famous names of the past have spent their professional life, during excavation seasons, and their free time. Some of these houses have already disappeared, some are on the verge of being demolished and some (Like Castle Carter) will probably still be there long after we are gone.

Nevertheless, they do have a history of their own and are, in our opinion, worth of being surveyed, their history recorded for future generations.

And that’s exactly what we will try to do! Locate as many of these houses (or the location where they once stood) as possible and write articles about their history.
