SCA upcoming projects An overview of upcoming projects for the SCA:
“SCA chief Dr. Zahi Hawass lays out his plans for the rest of the year and offers some intriguing hints on what may be the mummy of Queen Hatshepsut. Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), is a man who needs little rest. In July and August, anyone with the means fled the nation’s capital to escape the summer heat, but Hawass continued his daily regime of excavation, reclamation and restoration of Egypt’s ancient treasures — and he has planned an exciting last few months of 2006 to cap it all off.”
See the above page for details of the upcoming plans, including the mummy-cataloging project (including the possibility of DNA testing), the future display of mummies in the Fustat museum, plans to excavate a shaft in the tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, and a plan to secure a loan of the Nefertiti bust from Berlin.
