Theban Harbours Project back in the field

EES Theban Harbours and Waterscapes Project

Our first full day in the field was a great relief to us after our work was cut short last season. It is great to be back in Egypt and Luxor where everyone is as hospitable as ever. It’s a great time to visit the city and all the sites!

We have started a long Electrical Resistivity Tomography profile from the edge of the West Bank going into the floodplain along a dirt track just south of the Ramesseum. The tea was flowing from the villagers. There’s nothing glamorous about working in Donkey dung! But what could be better than the first pylon of the Ramesseum as your back drop.
