TT 110 Field School for the Epigraphic, Photographic & Artifact Recording Project

Theban Tomb 110, located along the north eastern end of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, on Luxor’s West Bank, has recently been the focus of work undertaken as part of ARCE Luxor’s larger APS program of work. Project Director: JJ Shirley

The Theban Tomb 110 Field School Project has three main goals: to carry out a complete photographic and epigraphic recording of the tomb’s decoration; to study a sample of the many artifacts that were brought to light during ARCE’s excavation; and to train Egyptians in these aspects of tomb and artifact documentation. An expert in epigraphy and another in artifact drawing, with the help of an Egyptian assistant, will run each school and train 2-3 Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities Affairs Inspectors in these skills.
