Digging Diary 2008: Dutch Mission to Saqqara

"This season the work will continue in clearing the forecourt of Ptahemwia's tomb, the areas to the north and south. The shafts and underground complexes will be excavated, and the walls of the tomb will be consolidated. Further, the tombs of Horemheb, Pay and Raia will be restored. In Maya's tomb one of the subsidiary shafts will be re-investigated in order to ascertain whether it is indeed leading to an archaic tomb, suggested by some artefactual evidence.The team arrived in Egypt on the 20th of January and will leave on March 5th. Here you can read about the excavation in our 'Digging Diary 2008'."
