University of Brussels Expedition in the Theban Necropolis

Units : CReA-Patrimoine. Research Centre in Archaeology and Heritage | ULB713

Description :

Since 1999, the MANT undertook the conservation, study and publication of two tombs in the Theban necropolis (Luxor west bank),
belonging to high dignitaries of the reign of Amenhotep II (New Kingdom, ca. 1425 BC). These two monuments, TT29 (Amenemope) and
TT96 (Sennefer), are studied under a double viewpoint, both synchronic (architectural study, archaeology of practices...) and
diachronic (history of the occupation of this part of the necropolis, from the construction of the tomb until the present). An important
part of the project is devoted to the conservation of the wall paintings in both tomb chapels.
