Theban Tomb 110 Epigraphy: Object Drawing & Research Field School

Theban Tomb 110, located along the north-eastern end of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, on Luxor’s West Bank, was the focus of conservation and archaeological field schools undertaken as part of ARCE Luxor’s larger APS program. Project Director: JJ Shirley

Theban Tomb 110, located along the north-eastern end of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, on Luxor’s West Bank, was the focus of conservation and archaeological field schools undertaken as part of ARCE Luxor’s larger APS program of work from 2012-2015. In 2014-2016 a third field school in Epigraphy and Research utilized TT 110 as a training ground. This project continued and expanded the already successful Epigraphy and Research Field School. In order to make the project available to a great number of students, and also provide former students with an opportunity to increase their epigraphic and illustration skills. Recognizing the growing important that digital recording has in the archaeological field, it is important to ensure that our students have a solid grasp of technology and its appropriate application.
