Start of week 2 in Asasif

The second week of the 2019 season of the Ankh-Hor project started off very successful – first of all, our last recruitment arrived! Team member Hassan Ramadan finally came from Berlin last night, joined us this morning and immediately started with illustrating objects, today some nice Chiotic amphorae.

The other tasks also continued as planned – cleaning and consolidation of coffins from TT 414 as well as their photographic documentation. The current focus of conservation work is on a very interesting lower part of a wooden anthropoid coffin from the 26th Dynasty which was re-used in Ptolemaic times – I will explain more about this special piece here shortly.
