Luxor News Blog

Thanks to Jane Akshar for posting more of Richard's photographs, this time of TT391, the tomb of Karbasken (Mayor of Thebes and Fourth Priest of Amun) who lived during the reign of Shabaka of the 25th Dynasty. The tomb was first discovered in 1820 by Wilkinson, Hey and Burton. Read more about the tomb at the South Asasif project page. A preliminary report, in PDF format, for the 2010 season is available too:

Elena Pischikova wrote an article about the South Asasif tombs in the April/May 2009 issue of Ancient Egypt Magazine.
