JANUARY 2006

This is an educational web site that aims to provide the viewer with the elements of archaeological work, including the progress of excavation. The daily results are crucial to an understanding of how field investigation takes place, since decisions must be made on the basis of ongoing work. The people involved in the work are also an essential feature and contribute profoundly to the final outcomes. The focus of our diary is thus often on the people and their activities.

In January 2006, Hopkins' work in Egypt will resume at the Mut Temple Precinct. Professor Betsy Bryan, with a team of JHU students and photographer Jay VanRensselaer, will arrive in Luxor, a southern Egyptian city, on January 2. This is the eleventh year of the Johns Hopkins University Expedition under the direction of Dr. Bryan. Jay VanRensselaer is making his eighth trip with Professor Bryan to photograph the finds of her excavations. As in past years, he will be documenting the work at the site with a digital camera. He will be sending the photographs with commentary from Professor Bryan describing the team's daily progress during the month of January.

As always, the Johns Hopkins University thanks the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and, in particular, its Secretary General, Dr. Zahi Hawass, for their ongoing support of our archaeological work in Egypt. The Supreme Council of Antiquities supervises all fieldwork research in Egypt and also monitors and preserves the ancient monuments.
