Snippet from the EES Newsletter

Another of the Amelia Edwards Projects, the Karnak Land and Waterscapes Survey, was led in the field during March and April by Angus Graham. Members’ donations allowed Angus to continue the study of ceramic material with the aim of shedding further light on the possibility that the temples of Karnak were built on an island. The significance of the project’s findings is clearly recognised by other teams in the area now, with the result that Angus has also looked at a variety of other issues connected with the relationship between the river and archaeological sites in the East and West, and the team’s interpretations are already causing us to revise our understanding of the development of the region’s monuments.
