More on Merenptah

Lyla Pinch Brock sent me the following email with lots of good links.

Hi Jane;
I thought you might like to have this news for your website concerning what's on in Luxor. Ted finally finished his reconstruction of the sarcophagus of Merenptah based on 30% of the original pieces. I painted in the missing decoration. The sarcophagus box is as big as a small room and took us two years to build and complete, using ancient Egyptian manoeuvering techniques The tomb re-opened last week and the new monument has attracted hundreds of tourists daily! Here are the news links; 

All the best,
