The ongoing clearing of debris in and around the entrance to TT110 has recently uncovered several interesting small objects representing many ancient periods.
Leading the painstaking clearing and documentation which revealed these objects is ARCE staff archaeologist Saad Bakhit abd el Hafez. Saad has been a supervising archaeologist for the ARCE Archaeological and Conservation Project in Luxor since 2011.
Heliopolis once stood at the centre of the ancient Egyptian sun-cult, a core element of ancient Egyptian religion for more than three millennia. Today the site is seriously threatened by new construction and a rapidly rising water table.
INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF MUSEUMS
The International Council of Museums, in an effort to fight against illicit traffic in cultural goods, compiles the Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk.
