Funeral of Ahmed from the Deir el Medina bookshop
It was the last day of the funeral of Ahmed today and I went along to pay my respects and to pass on all the condolences posted on the blog, facebook and twitter. Ahmed was only 48 and had been ill for 10 days when he died. I spoke to his brother Mohammed, who I know well, and his sons. I told them how much Ahmed had been respected in the Egyptology world, especially the French and how he will be missed.
