Foundation Deposits of Hatshepsut found at Karnak
More from Jane Akshar on her Luxor News Blog: "I spoke today to François Larché who head the Franco Egyptian team at Karnak. Rosemary, one of his team who is working in the area of the doorway and obelisk of Hatshepsut has found 2 new foundation deposit. Apparently they are having a very good season. These normally consit of miniture tools and when I asked about this I thought these were really tiny but he demonstrated a size of about a couple of feet. I do find it amazing that despite the length of time that Karnak has been known to us and with all the visitors trundling in and out they are still finding new things".
