Deir el-Ballas 2019-2020, Week 9: 1/25Admin
The last day for the season. We have covered up the exposed ancient brick with sand to protect it until next year when we can cap it with new mud-brick to protect it. Vicky Jensen has taken on the herculean task of seeing the registered objects to the Antiquities Department storeroom and securing the sherd material and samples for next season. Our report is turned into the local Antiquities Inspectorate office in Qena and we are off to Cairo to hand in our accounts for the Antiquities Endowment Fund Grant to the American Research Center in Egypt. Next steps are to plan and fundraise for next season.
More to come!
