J.P.Simpson photographs of Egypt
Thanks very much to Jaromir Malek, Keeper of the Archive at the Griffith Institute for the following item about the J.P. Simpson photographs which show details of, amongst other things, missing and damaged scenes in TT96: "A collection of photographs taken in Egypt in 1888 by James Parker Simpson can now be consulted on the Griffith Institute's web pages, above. The photographs are the property of his great grandson, Mr Simon B. Simpson OBE and have been identified and catalogued by the Topographical Bibliography team. They contain several now destroyed or damaged scenes in TT 96 Sennufer (Le Tombeau des Vignes) and several interesting images taken in royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Copies of the photographs are now in the Archive of the Griffith Institute in Oxford and an article about the photographs taken in TT 96 will appear in the next issue of Discussions in Egyptology".
